Low-income housing group to meet here

The Low Income Housing Coalition of Alabama (LIHCA) will host its quarterly membership meeting on Thursday, Feb. 18, in Demopolis at Robertson Banking Company. This meeting is open to the public and offers west Alabamians the chance to learn more about what LIHCA is doing in the state to alleviate the housing crisis

There will also be information presented on the creation of an affordable housing trust fund in Alabama.

Alabama has an estimated shortage of over 44,000 affordable and available housing units. In this time of economic crisis, many people are unable to find safe and affordable housing for their families. The mission of LIHCA is to increase housing opportunities for Alabamians with the greatest financial need. LIHCA seeks to educate Alabamians about affordable housing opportunities in the state and advocate for sound housing policy to end the housing crisis in Alabama.

LIHCA is a statewide partnership dedicated to ending the affordable housing crisis in Alabama.

LIHCA was formed in July 2007 in the belief that a unified voice would strengthen housing advocacy in the state. Through education and advocacy, LIHCA is raising awareness of this housing shortage, as well as the many challenges faced by those living at or below the poverty level. LIHCA pursues its mission to increase housing opportunities for those with the greatest financial need by promoting new affordable housing strategies.
