Up for Growth is non-profit forum representing a diverse and growing coalition of stakeholders who believe that communities should grow for the benefit of every person.

The U.S. is facing a severe shortage of homes and an associated housing affordability crisis. From 2000 and 2015, the U.S. fell 7.3 million homes short of meeting housing needs, and the shortage is getting worse. 

Embracing cross-sector collaboration, Up for Growth convenes housing developers, trade associations, economic development organizations, social justice and environmental advocates, and public sector employees in problem-specific and solutions-oriented discussions to inform research and policy to ensure all people have access to a home they can afford near amenities they need. We leverage the expertise of a diverse member network to produce ground-breaking research that drives pragmatic, experience-based, data-driven solutions to the housing crisis. 

Up for Growth works hard to foster more equitable community growth by engaging a diverse member network to shape research and policies that help eliminate structural barriers to housing. 

We invite you to join Up for Growth so we can work together to create achievable solutions to the housing crisis.

Membership provides you with:

  • Participation opportunities in research and policy analysis workgroups
  • Networking opportunities with hundreds of cross-sector organizations who care about housing affordability
  • Access to online housing research tools, economic analysis, and timely research literature
  • Invitations to the Up for Growth Action Legislative Advocacy Day in Washington D.C. and our Annual Conference
  • And more!
