What We Do

  • The mission of the Missouri Workforce Housing Association (MOWHA) is to have a sustained effort influencing positive workforce housing policy at the federal, state, and local levels.
     
  • We are the advocate in Jefferson City for the community and industry, utilizing our policy expertise and practical know-how to help preserve successful programs. And we are the ombudsman, facilitating members’ ability to solve problems that may be encountered in a variety of state programs. 
     
  • We monitor all state government actions regarding affordable housing incentives.
     
  • We support initiatives that advance the cause of affordable housing throughout the state and work to build public and legislative backing to buttress these programs.
     
  • We distill the views of MOWHA members into a coherent agenda which our Advocacy and Legislative teams take to key policymakers in the legislative & executive branches.
     
  • We are vigilant in our legislative monitoring and tireless in our efforts to mobilize support for - and oppose cuts to - critical affordable housing programs.
