SLIHC offers technical support to its members by providing a revolving loan fund for land acquisition and infrastructure, by hosting monthly meetings to address housing issues, by conducting housing surveys and gathering housing market information and statistics, and by sponsoring trainings and seminars. Strengthening and supporting a network of affordable housing providers, their partners and their clients is central to SLIHC’s work.
SLIHC works with its members and others to reduce homelessness and overcome affordable housing challenges, and partners with the City of Spokane, Spokane County, the business community, other nonprofits, and particularly members of the Spokane Homeless Coalition. SLIHC advocates for affordable housing by researching public policies affecting the development, financing, ownership, management and preservation of affordable housing, and providing testimony at public meetings, written comments to local, state and federal government agencies, and participating in state and national advocacy organizations. SLIHC considers affordable housing advocacy and enhancing partnerships with community organizations and individuals essential to accomplishing the goal of affordable housing for all.
