NAHRO's 2016 Legislative & Regulatory Agenda

NAHRO's 2016 Legislative Agenda is entitled "Keeping America's Promise." The beginning of 2016 marks the midway point in the 114th Congress and the end of President Obama's final term in office. This year will be one of contemplation and change. As the nation considers the future and votes to make changes, public housing authorities and redevelopment agencies will continue to make real, lasting impacts on the local level to ensure that all Americans have decent, safe, and affordable homes.

This agenda seeks to define NAHRO's key legislative and regulatory priorities for the upcoming year. We have constructed this guide to serve as a launching pad for NAHRO members to craft their own advocacy strategy and materials, creating a backdrop against which members can highlight their own local knowledge and the priorities of their community.  

NAHRO staff is currently in the process of drafting the 2017 Legislative Agenda. If you have an upcoming regional or state chapter meeting and need guidance on legislative positions, please email Tess Hembree (

Priority Pages

The Legislative Agenda includes four Priority Pages that spotlight one or more of the programs in which NAHRO members participate.  The Priority Pages are intended to give depth to the overall agenda, but are also designed to be able to stand alone as individual advocacy pieces.
