With the recent foreclosure crisis and the rise of housing affordability problems, concerns around substandard and dilapidated homes may have waned or been pushed into the background. Long-term efforts to improve housing conditions have resulted in dramatic reductions in the most egregious housing deficiencies. But, a large number of homes without working plumbing are located in rural and small town areas. In some rural communities, especially on Native American lands, the incidence of homes lacking basic plumbing can exceed 20 times the national rate. Lance will share about HAC's capital and public relations campaign to fund and publicize a multifaceted initiative with the goal of eliminating outhouses and inadequate plumbing in this country. It will include both public and private funders/resources and be implemented through local community-based housing organizations. ReFrame organizations are invited to help strategize, plan, and implement this unique approach to a persistent problem that has an achievable solution.
