MHC strengthens, unites, and mobilizes private and public resources to provide fair, accessible and affordable housing for everyone in our Louisville community.

Who We Are.

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.

What We
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. MHC produces an annual State of Metropolitan Housing Report on measures of fair and affordable housing and an in-depth focus topic analysis. We use this data and gather information on best practices to make policy changes and identify new funding mechanisms for fair housing and affordable housing.

 

ADVOCACY AND EDUCATION

  • MHC educates the public and policymakers using the data, policy analysis, and recommendations of the annual State of Metropolitan Housing Report.

  • MHC produces forums on relevant housing topics that are free and open to the public.

  • MHC creates digital resources on a variety of housing issues.

  • MHC facilitates ongoing monthly discussions through the Fair Housing Coalition and the Louisville Vacant Property Campaign.

  • MHC intervenes in cases involving utility rates and specific zoning issues.

  • MHC analyzes the policy documents released by public departments, submits comments, and creates opportunities for the public to comment on policies.
