Goal 3: "Every American lives in safe, decent, affordable and energy efficient housing on fair terms."
What does the Tucson Urban League do to ensure that "every American lives in safe, decent, affordable and energy efficient housing on fair terms"?
The Tucson Urban League believes people with the fewest resources are hurt the most when a home is no longer affordable and obtainable. The Housing Department is dedicated to three strategies that support vulnerable homeowners (1) help homeowners who wish to buy a home make good decisions, (2) promote responsible energy consumption through the revitalization of housing, and (3) provide emergency utility and rental assistance to help families maintain their residence. We are working to restore pride in homes and neighborhoods when the means to maintain a residence has failed. The Tucson Urban League is committed to advocating for the equitable treatment of our communities in the public and private housing system.
