Affordable Housing 


At CCPPI, every person deserves access to a safe, clean, reliable, and affordable place to live. Unfortunately, the basic standard of housing is often unmet for communities of color, creating conditions hazardous to quality of life, well-being, and health and slowing progress for economic growth. 

Our affordable housing areas of focus. We work to:  

  • Increase the number of individuals and families who own safe, affordable housing through our work implementing the Southeast Affordable Housing Plan with the Midtown Redevelopment Authority and affordable housing developers. 
  • Advocate for an equitable tax system that allows Black & Latinx homeowners long-term affordability and home ownership. 
  • Prevent residents in Houston & across the state of Texas from experiencing eviction by advocating at the local, state, and national levels for rental assistance and right to counsel, best practices in the eviction court system, and educating tenants about their rights, resources, and organizing power.

The Houston Housing Collaborative (HHC) is a membership organization that advocates for Houston area residents by promoting the development of an equitable housing plan. HHC aims to be a driving force for an affordable housing production environment that supports maintaining home quality, the option of staying in place, expanding resources and opportunities for new affordable homes, preserving land access/use, and sustaining economic vitality for households and communities.

The Houston Eviction Solidarity Network (HESN) works to support tenants facing eviction by reducing the shame and stigma associated with evictions, conducting court watch to ensure judges treat those facing eviction fairly, and humanizing a complex, systemic problem by uplifting tenant stories.
