ADVOCACY AND RESEARCH

We seek creative and innovative ways to address our community's housing needs. In that pursuit, we collect and share research, and we advocate locally, statewide and nationally with others, so we can produce effective results for families and neighborhoods.

LEGISLATIVE PRIORITIES

SERV_Government_IconOrange

MORE FINANCIAL SUPPORT FOR AFFORDABLE HOUSING

INHP supports tax credits, appropriations, grants, loan funds or other mechanisms that bring additional resources to support the creation or preservation of affordable housing.

REAL ESTATE TAX/ASSESSED VALUATION RELIEF

INHP supports policy that offers solutions to curb increasing real estate tax obligation for various populations (i.e. seniors, veterans, families with low income) as home values have increased significantly.

INFORMED CONSUMERS / CONSUMER PROTECTIONS

INHP believes financial literacy, clear disclosures and consumer protections are critical to improve outcomes in housing stability and enhanced quality of life.

INHP is part of several networks where we can collaborate to advance our priorities.
