Advocacy and Awareness

HFHGA’s advocacy efforts help Georgia affiliates of Habitat for Humanity promote greater support for affordable housing and community revitalization efforts in Georgia and speak with one voice against legislation, programs and policies that would hinder our mission and the families we serve.

Just this year, HFHGA worked with state representatives to pass House Bill 750, an amendment to existing legislation that allows Habitat for Humanity affiliates to continue to issue zero-interest mortgages to hard-working Georgia families. Without this legislation, Habitat affiliates across the state would have been in serious risk of being unable to originate these mortgages so many people desperately need.
