About

Housing America Month

Housing America Logo

In 2007, Housing America was created and October was designated as the annual month for NAHRO and its members to collectively raise awareness of the need for, and the importance of, safe, decent and affordable housing in quality communities.

Events are held around the country by housing authorities, redevelopment agencies and government entities to spotlight the great works that have been done and the successes that so many residents have experienced. Sadly, there continues to be an unmet housing need for many of America’s most vulnerable. 

Here you can find examples of what NAHRO members have done to recognize and celebrate Housing America Month.
