Housing America is NAHRO's campaign that raises national awareness of the need for and importance of safe, quality, affordable housing through education, advocacy, and empowerment.
- Education: The campaign educates the general public about government-funded housing and community development programs. This effort brings clarity and transparency to the programs NAHRO-member agencies administer.
- Advocacy: Celebrating Housing America Month, which occurs each October, is one way housing and community development program officials advocate for the affordable housing work they do.
- Empowerment: Housing America's signature program, the What Home Means to Me national poster contest and calendar, tells the stories of youth living in HUD-assisted housing and empowers them. The Voices for Housing video series also shares resident stories from around the United States.
