Advertising in Shelterforce
For nearly 40 years, Shelterforce has been a national forum for affordable housing and community revitalization advocates.
Shelterforce documents the strategies that groups and individuals use to effect change. Through the national dissemination of this information, Shelterforce acts as a catalyst for other groups around the country who are attacking systemic problems of low- and moderate-income communities in urban and rural areas. Shelterforce articles provide how-to information as well as policy review, analysis and direction. Our readers include neighborhood developers, organizers, and advocates; policymakers and influencers; and urban planners and academics. Shelterforce is used in most of the U.S. graduate and undergraduate urban planning programs from coast to coast.
