HAC information products are a valuable resource for affordable housing providers across rural America. The HAC News newsletter, published every two weeks since April 1972, provides a concise summary of national news on rural housing. Rural Voices, HAC’s quarterly magazine, presents insights and information about relevant topics oriented for local housing organizations. Each edition focuses on a topical issue and features articles written by local rural housing professionals. HAC also disseminates information through social media as well as through web-based presentations.
