Making Housing a Priority: A Fahe Advocacy Case Study

June 2024

This publication describes two dynamic advocacy campaigns: the creation of a Rural Housing Trust Fund (RHTF) in Kentucky with an originating $20 million allocation, and an investment of between $10-14 million American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) dollars in Tennessee for housing working families can afford. Both cases demonstrate how small networks of traditionally marginalized groups and communities can have a major impact via collective advocacy. The publication includes a summary of lessons learned, an overview of the two campaigns, and a chart comparing the key features of each campaign.
