Opportunity Starts at Home Roundtable

The Autism Housing Network is excited to be a member of the Opportunity Starts at Home Roundtable.

Opportunity Starts at Home is a dynamic, long-term, multi-sector campaign to meet the housing needs of the nation’s low-income people. Various sectors are recognizing that affordable homes are inextricably linked to their own priorities and concerns, and housing advocates are realizing that they cannot do this work alone.
Going forward, a diverse range of stakeholders from various sectors are necessary to generate widespread support and to effectuate federal policies that protect and expand affordable housing.
The campaign is a multi-faceted effort that works closely with strengthened state-based organizations to impact federal policy. It deploys policy analysis, communications, and advocacy to impact opinion leaders and policymakers. The campaign has a full-time dedicated staff and is leveraging the capacity of participating organizations.
The campaign has four goals:
  1. Bridge the growing gap between renter incomes and rising housing costs
  2. Provide aid to people experiencing job losses or other economic shocks to avert housing instability or homelessness
  3. Expand the affordable housing stock for low-income renters
  4. Defend existing rental assistance and other targeted housing resources from harmful cuts
