All housing providers are welcome to join!

Public housing agencies, non-profit housing providers, for-profit housing providers, tribal housing organization & more 

Support for rental housing is often ignored by policymakers because renters vote at lower rates than homeowners. More so, low-income households are less likely to vote than wealthy households. Housing providers are in a unique position to address this disparity by encouraging renters to vote, making sure they know how to register, and helping to coordinate access to absentee ballots or polling locations.

Participation in the Housing Providers Council is completely free, and there are no membership fees. Here are the simple requirements for participants:

  1. Commit to engage in election activities in a non-partisan manner

  2. Provide a contact person who will represent your organization in planning conversations and who will coordinate voter registration and mobilization activities

  3. Follow all relevant election laws

Reasons to Participate

  • Technical support. NLIHC's Our Homes, Our Votes campaign will provide training and assistance to resident services and property management staff working to register and mobilize voters.

  • Template materials. Sample collateral such as posters, flyers, newsletter articles, mailings, and voter guides will be provided. These materials can be co-branded for each Housing Providers Council participant to include your logo.

  • Partnership with election organizations. The Our Homes, Our Votes campaign has developed strong partnerships with organizations that can provide help on issues ranging from organizing targeted voter registration drives to protecting voting rights to accessing voter ID. Participants in the Housing Providers Council will gain easy connection to these partners and their assistance.

  • Media amplification of efforts. Our Homes, Our Votes will feature the efforts of the Housing Providers Council in social media engagement, blog posts, and e-newsletters.

  • Peer learning. The Housing Providers Council will provide a venue through which housing organization staff can connect with one another to share about challenges, discuss best practices, and develop innovative solutions. Housing Providers Council members will participate in monthly meetings that provide a space to share successful strategies and receive feedback on resident voter engagement initiatives.
