2017 Housing Day Materials – Every year, VHA and its partners hold a Housing Day at the General Assembly in Richmond. Around 125 advocates gather for a morning training followed by meetings with their state legislators to discuss items on our legislative agenda and discuss housing and homeless service needs in their districts.

2016 Housing Policy Forum Each fall, VHA conducts listening sessions around the state to connect with our grassroots supporters, updating you on our work, and learning what the housing trends and issues are in your communities. We use your input to inform our legislative agenda each year.

Housing Trust Fund – VHA maintains a website dedicated to one of our flagship issues, advocating for the Virginia Housing Trust Fund. Check here for the latest information on the impact that the fund has had in the state and its current status.

2015 Housing Policy Guide – VHA periodically releases a housing policy guide. This document covers a wide range of issues and is meant for education and background on the Alliance’s long-term policy goals along with many of the issues currently being addressed by the General Assembly. Look out for 2017 update of our policy guide later this year!

VHA Legislative Archive – If you would like to dig deeper, here’s an archive of materials from past GA Sessions and Housing Days.
