State government has the power to create the conditions needed for positive economic development to happen, turn demonstrations and local strategies into scaled programs, and remove barriers to social, economic and environmental progress. MACED seeks to advance a state policy agenda that supports green job creation, poverty alleviation and improved environmental and health conditions through investment in energy efficiency and renewable energy."

Organizational Mission

For two decades, the Metropolitan Housing Coalition (MHC) has been the united voice for fair, decent and affordable housing in the Louisville, KY metropolitan region. We provide research, community education and collaboration-building in order to advocate for sound housing policies in our region, state and nation.


Year Founded - 1989


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.

 

"At a time when the price of energy continues to rise, affording to keep homes warm becomes an issue that unites a broad range of families, but the burden is disproportionately devastating to low-income residents.  MHC is dedicated to ensuring safe, fair and affordable housing choices for all residents, which includes utility costs."
