Cost of a Home

Join our Cost of Home advocacy campaign. 

Today, one in six families pay half or more of their income on their rent or mortgage.

They often must choose between paying for housing or nutritious food, reliable transportation or healthcare needs. That is unacceptable. Your home shouldn’t cost you anywhere near half your paycheck. Home shouldn’t cost you your health or your children’s education. When the cost of home is any family’s future, that’s something none of us can afford.

Together, we can make the cost of home something we all can afford.

What is the Cost of Home campaign?

Through the Cost of Home advocacy campaign, Habitat for Humanity will mobilize local Habitat organizations, partners, volunteers and community members across the country to find the solutions and help create the policies that will allow 10 million individuals to have access to affordable housing.

Over the next five years, the campaign will improve home affordability by promoting policy and systems change in four key areas: affordable home production, access to credit, equitable land use, and communities of opportunity.
