Capitol Hill Day 2024

This year’s Capitol Hill Day will take place Wednesday, July 10, 2024.

Last year, more than 450 advocates from dozens of states participated in Capitol Hill Day. The Alliance is hoping for continued success as we return to Washington this year. We can’t ensure the issue of homelessness is on Congress’s radar without YOUR help!

Please read the below information for details on Capitol Hill Day. Remember to check this page regularly, as resources and additional details about how you can get involved will be shared as the conference gets closer.

All conference registrants are welcome to participate in Capitol Hill Day. Separate registration is not required.

What is Capitol Hill Day?

Capitol Hill Day is one of the most important ways to engage in federal advocacy to help end homelessness. Through face-to-face meetings with Members of Congress and their staff, you have an opportunity to establish and build relationships with Congressional offices, educate elected officials on success and progress at home, and encourage them to work in support of policy initiatives to eliminate homelessness.

The Alliance welcomes everyone to participate, including Continuum of Care (CoC) leads, front-line staff, lived experience advocates, local and governmental officials and others involved in ending homelessness. It is important to have equitable and diverse representation at Capitol Hill meetings.

Is Capitol Hill Day for Me?

You don’t need any special skills in policy or advocacy to participate in Capitol Hill Day — you only need to share information about homelessness and your perspective on the work you do each day. The Alliance and designated State Coordinators from your state will provide you with resources and talking points to help you prepare for a great meeting. Your State Coordinator and the Alliance will also schedule your visits, and make sure you know where to go on Capitol Hill Day.

How Does Capitol Hill Day Work?

The Alliance provides Capitol Hill Day participants with several opportunities to get prepared, comfortable, and excited for their time on the Hill. Please note that Capitol Hill Day is optional and not a requirement to attend the conference. However, we would love to have you join us for the largest in-person Congressional homelessness advocacy day of the year!

Before the Conference

Leading up to the conference, State Coordinators will reach out to Capitol Hill Day attendees to invite them to virtual prep meetings. It is crucial to participate in these meetings in order to know this year’s policy asks, Hill meeting schedules, and general logistics for the event.

At the Conference

On Monday, July 8, the Alliance will host a prep session from 9:00 A.M. – 12:00 P.M. to provide information on advocacy basics, policy priorities, and tips and techniques for continued in-district engagement with your elected officials. We will ensure that participants have all the information necessary for successful Hill visits. We will also address key logistical questions regarding participation.

Throughout the conference, State Coordinators will hold state-specific prep to prepare you and other participants from your state (also known as your delegation) for the Congressional meetings. You can find these session times and locations in the conference app or posted in person at the Advocacy Hub.

For questions about your state’s Congressional meetings or State Prep Session, please reach out to your State Coordinator(s) directly or stop by the Advocacy Hub, where you can pick up resources and connect with members of the Alliance’s advocacy team.
