Housing

America’s ever-changing housing policy landscape calls for a communications firm that understands the issues, players and policy intricacies that affect our neighborhoods and the bootstrap efforts of the activists and community groups helping them progress.

For more than 15 years Tricom has worked with local and national nonprofits, grassroots community organizers, government agencies, mortgage lenders and advocacy groups to help revitalize America’s neighborhoods and create opportunity for economic advancement in communities across the country.

Over the years we have played an integral role in launching and successfully maintaining communications campaigns for many of our nation’s leading affordable housing advocates, including NeighborWorks America, National Training & Information Center (NTIC), the National Affordable Housing Management Association (NAHMA) and the National Industry Standards for Homeownership Education & Counseling.

We helped launch the National Community Stabilization Trust, an unprecedented partnership between Enterprise Community Partners, Housing Partnership Network, Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC), NeighborWorksAmerica, National Council of La Raza and the National Urban League. We also created a brand for and helped launch StableCommunities.org, an online tool for community development organizations working to rebuild communities in the wake of the recent mortgage and foreclosure crisis.

Our projects also include developing customized media relations and marketing strategies for community-based nonprofit organizations, as well as implementing large- and small-scale advertising and public service announcement (PSA) campaigns to promote events and increase public understanding.

The housing policies and programs we’ve helped advance range from the Community Reinvestment Act to foreclosure prevention, homeownership education and counseling, economic development, community stabilization and "green" building. We take pride in working with organizations and homeowners to help preserve the American Dream.
