This is accomplished primarily through grant making and learning exchanges in FHO’s three priority areas: policy, advocacy, and organizing; narrative change; and elevating what works. FHO has prioritized racial equity in its work, and seeks to change housing policies, practices, and institutions that have perpetuated a system of discrimination in housing and harm to communities of color.
