Significant Accomplishments

MHC is a private, non-profit organization representing 180 member organizations  and 200 individual members. Through member support, we are able to gather and publish research to better understand and advocate for current housing issues. Our most comprehensive report is the 2009 State of Metropolitan Housing Report which serves as an annual and ongoing report card for safe, fair and affordable housing challenges and successes in the Louisville MSA. All reports can be downloaded from our website, www.MetropolitanHousing.org.
