Housing Is and CLPHA Principles
CLPHA believes the stability provided by affordable housing is the critical first element of many important and interconnected social determinants that shape life outcomes. We support efforts in housing and other sectors like education, health, and workforce that improve access to opportunity, safety, healthcare, and financial stability for low-income Americans.

CLPHA is committed to recognizing the interconnectedness of affordable housing, quality education, and healthcare access to provide individuals and families stability and opportunity. The Housing Is Initiative builds upon mounting evidence that housing stability acts as a keystone of individuals’ and families’ abilities to achieve academically, secure and maintain employment, and achieve regular access to needed health services.

We stand with residents of public housing who are often dependent on other social systems, as well as our partners in other sectors to advocate for smart, intersectional policies and practices.
