Decisions made in Washington, DC affect even the most remote corners of rural America. Affordable housing everywhere in the country is impacted by what federal agencies do, what Congress does, even what the Supreme Court decides. HAC follows federal policy and government actions closely and gives rural housing stakeholders the information they need. Details about the most recent government funding, laws, regulations, and more are provided on this page. HAC provides summaries and key facts in the biweekly HAC News newsletter and on its social media streams.

HAC does a wonderful job in providing national presence and leadership in Washington and with other national organizations to keep rural housing issues within their focus
