We are

Our Mission

The American Property Owners Alliance is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization created to protect and support property owners. We believe that ownership of property — homes, land and commercial real estate — is essential to strong communities.

Our mission is to educate property owners about federal issues, laws and policies; advocate for owners’ rights and interests; and mobilize, when necessary, to secure those rights and interests.

We are committed to timely outreach and strategic action that will cultivate and sustain property ownership in communities throughout the country.

Our Focus

Housing Access

A lack of housing supply and affordability challenge Americans unlike ever before. We drive support for long-term solutions that will curb these issues and unlock more access to housing.

Property Rights

Property owners have a say in the decisions impacting their investment. We provide current and aspiring owners with resources to stay informed and a platform to make their voices heard.

Strong Communities

Property taxes paid by owners contribute to local schools, first responders, infrastructure and more. We work to create a favorable tax environment that encourages property ownership and strengthens communities.

Our Impact

The Alliance educates and amplifies the voices of advocates across all 50 states to safeguard and advance property ownership.

32,800+ active advocates uniting to influence the decisions impacting property ownership and create a powerful voice for policymakers to hear.

8,240+ messages sent to members of Congress in support of policies and solutions that will protect property owner interests and promote broader, more equitable access to property ownership.

4 events hosted throughout the country, convening 465 current and prospective property owners to discuss financial education in the home buying process and the value of building wealth through property ownership.
