As Sarah Mickelson, Senior Director of Public Policy explains, the National Low Income Housing Coalition recognizes it members, low-income people, as experts on the needs and experiences of those who are most impacted by homelessness and our nation's severe housing shortage. NLIHC is a constant champion of the housing needs of lowest income Americans. At a time in which federal budget cuts to programs serving people living in poverty are commonplace, the Coalition actually secured a public funding increase. Sarah credits this accomplishment to the engagement of NLIHC's low-income members with their Congressional members and its growing partnerships with many capable nonprofits that address related issues, including health, children and education.
