RAP and EAP at the Conference

Your personal experience of homelessness or living in affordable housing is welcome here: Resident Action Project and Emerging Advocates at COEH

The Conference on Ending Homelessness (COEH) presents numerous opportunities for learning and networking. The Resident Action Project (RAP) and the Emerging Advocates Program (EAP) at COEH bring conference opportunities and program support together to create a space for affordable housing residents and people who’ve experienced homelessness to network, learn, and feel supported at the conference and beyond.

The Resident Action Project aims to build a statewide network people who live in affordable homes, people who are low-income, and people who have experienced homelessness. Our goal is to empower and follow the lead of the these folks to take action to push for policy change at the state level. 

The Emerging Advocates Program provides advocacy training and support for individuals with direct experience of housing instability/homelessness. Participants gain skills and experience working for positive policy change to become advocacy leaders in their communities. EAP graduates are important members of the affordable housing advocacy community; many graduates build long-lasting connections and discover new opportunities through the Housing Alliance and our networks.
