Formed in 1989, MHC is a coalition of approximately 300 individual and organizational members—including non-profit housing developers, financial institutions, service providers, and neighborhood and advocacy groups. Together we facilitate research-based advocacy for fair, accessible, and affordable housing in the Louisville MSA.
MHC strengthens, unites, and mobilizes private and public resources to provide fair, accessible and affordable housing for everyone in our Louisville community.

Aim To Do.
RESEARCH AND POLICY ANALYSIS
Using Census Bureau information and all available housing data resources, MHC produces reliable information about fair housing and affordable housing topics.
