Habitat for Humanity lobbied on Capitol Hill this week for changes to the country’s housing policies. The Habitat on the Hill conference had support from 200 Habitat for Humanity leaders, homeowners and Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C.  

“I have a very long and intimate relationship with the local affiliate [back home in North Carolina] and Habitat in general to make federal regulations not effect affording housing,” Meadows told HOH. He first met with Habitat in fall 2013. The congressman now reaches out to the group from a legislative standpoint.
