Oklahoma Housing News and Notes


January 2016


The Oklahoma Coalition for Affordable Housing (OCAH) is a nonprofit 501(c)(6) organization serving the affordable housing industry across the state. Our mission is to lead Newsletter.jpgthe movement to ensure that all residents of the state of Oklahoma flourish in safe, affordable homes and to help communities develop safe and affordable housing options for all of their residents. We reach our mission through advocacy, education, and practical training to foster the production and maintenance of affordable housing throughout the state.

Founded just last year – June 1, 2015 – OCAH’s goal is to serve as the voice of affordable housing in Oklahoma by encouraging members representing a multitude of different industry segments to network, learn from one another, and work together toward common goals. In just a few short months, we have held several events, Board meetings, committee meetings, and our membership is growing!

We are now adding a new feature for 2016…a bi-monthly e-newsletter. The newsletter will feature housing news, updates about OCAH events and trainings, legislative updates, action alerts and a member spotlight featuring a profile of one of the organization’s original charter members. We hope this newsletter will serve as a resource for you and your company or organization. Thank you for all you have done to make the Coalition a success so far. We are looking forward to another great year!

OCAH Board President
