The Homeless Action Network of Detroit (HAND)’s core mission is to provide leadership to address homelessness in Detroit. One part of executing this mission involves advocacy to promote policies that increase affordable housing stock. For their deliverable, the team created a memo presenting an analysis of federal, state and local legislation relevant to HAND’s interest in the creation and maintenance of affordable housing stock in Detroit. The memo offers a variety of advocacy options at the federal, state and local level. Options include advocating for federal legislation to create additional affordable housing; supporting recommendations from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development; and pursuing programs that have been implemented in cities across the country to increase affordable housing stock. For city level programs, recommendations focus on the rehabilitation of existing housing stock for the purpose of affordable housing.
