Working Together For Affordable Housing
The Affordable Housing Conference of Montgomery County (AHCMC) believes that affordable, decent, and safe housing is an inalienable right—and not a privilege—for every American.
The mission of the AHCMC is to convene, inform, and empower elected officials, housing and community development leaders, business professionals, activists and residents to work towards affordable housing solutions.
Since its inception in 1991, AHCMC has tackled the challenges and impacts of affordable housing policies and programs at both the local and national level. Through its annual conference, awards programs, seminars, advocacy efforts and roundtable meetings, AHCHC seeks to form coalitions that identify and address issues including workforce housing, mixed-use and mixed-income developments, inclusionary zoning, rental housing preservation, first time home ownership, fair lending, public-private partnerships, and housing for people with disabilities.
Throughout the year, Board members work closely with local, state, and federal government officials, private developers, financial institutions and other nonprofit organizations to insure that affordable housing remains at the forefront of legislative and regulatory agendas. As a 501(c)(3) organization, AHCMC is able to provide technical and advisory assistance and work closely with organizations in their efforts to provide affordable housing efficiently and effectively.
The success of AHCMC is only possible because of the dedication and volunteer efforts of leaders in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors and because of the generous financial contributions of organizations and corporations who share our vision.
