Steering Committee

NRSHHA is guided by a 10 member steering committee made up of at least two members from each of the four USDA regions. The steering committee meets via phone on a monthly basis and face-to-face a couple of times each year, generally in combination with National Rural Housing Coalition meetings. Steering Committee members are elected annually.
