ABOUT THE METROPOLITAN HOUSING COALITION

MHC strengthens, unites, and mobilizes private and public resources to provide fair, accessible, and affordable housing for everyone in our community. We do this by facilitating research-based advocacy for fair and affordable housing in the Louisville MSA. Formed in 1989, MHC is a coalition of 300 individual and organizational members—including non-profit housing developers, financial institutions, service providers, and neighborhood and advocacy groups. Our coalition forms the united voice for fair, accessible, and affordable housing.

Research & Policy Analysis - MHC provides a unique voice for fair and affordable housing in Louisville and is the leader in housing data and policy analysis. Since 2003, MHC has produced the annual State of Metropolitan Housing Report (SMHR) with nine measures of fair and affordable housing and a focus topic. We are the only group to produce an annual housing report to track key housing data and to make housing policy recommendations in Louisville. MHC has a well-established history of producing high-quality reports on a variety of fair and affordable housing topics.

Advocacy & Education - MHC works as a coalition to follow up on State of Metropolitan Housing Report recommendations, by facilitating ongoing community-based groups, by engaging in public education campaigns through community meetings, by providing online resources to community members, and by advocating for safe, fair, and affordable housing policies. For example, MHC convenes monthly meetings of the Fair Housing Coalition and the Louisville Vacant Properties Campaign; hosts a public forum during Fair Housing Month in April; intervenes in cases before the Kentucky Public Service Commission to keep utility rates affordable for low-income individuals; and creates digital resources, such as Renter Center, a rental readiness program to educate individuals on important rental topics and to help households have a successful term as a renter.

Housing Resources - MHC plays a critical role in creating affordable housing resources for the Louisville community, such as the Louisville Affordable Housing Trust Fund, LHOME, and the All Seasons Assurance Plan (ASAP), and facilitates a loan pool for non-profit developers for low-income people.
