Cooper Housing Institute Awards $250,000 Grant to The Housing Narrative Lab
The Cooper Housing Institute has awarded Housing Narrative Labs a $250,000 grant to assist in the communication and advocacy efforts for those experiencing homelessness and housing insecurity.
“The Cooper Housing Institute is committed to supporting programs dedicated to research and improved public communications regarding homelessness,” said Cooper Housing Institute’s co-founder, Wilfred Cooper Jr.
“It is our mission to award grants to organizations like Housing Narrative Lab so they may continue to raise awareness on the homeless crisis in our nation.”
The Housing Narrative Lab provides research assistance, strategic communications, content creation, education and training to support grassroots organizations and national advocates working to solve homelessness. They use data-driven and research-based communications tools to deliver trusted information about housing insecurity and homelessness to advocates, journalists and policymakers. It is their mission to shift public perceptions on homelessness and housing instability and advocate for more investments, resources and policies dedicated to solving homelessness.
The Housing Narrative Lab will allocate the grant towards the improvement of their research and communications hub with the intent to develop into an even greater resource for press, advocacy and grassroots groups. This support hub will provide the tools, training, data, resources and capacity needed for additional campaigns and news stories that raise the voices of those experiencing housing insecurity and homelessness.
