How to Advertise

Since 1975, Shelterforce has been the voice of community development.

Shelterforce documents the strategies that groups and individuals use to effect change. Through the national dissemination of this information, Shelterforce acts as a catalyst for other groups around the country who are attacking systemic problems of low- and moderate-income communities in urban and rural areas. Shelterforce articles provide how-to information as well as policy review, analysis and direction. Our readers include neighborhood developers, organizers, and advocates; policymakers and influencers; and urban planners and academics. Shelterforce is used in most of the U.S. graduate and undergraduate urban planning programs from coast to coast.

Shelterforce Weekly advertising rates are based on total circulation and positioning in the Weekly and not by click throughs. Since your ad links to your website, we are unable to gather click and outcome statistics. Advertisers wishing to gather analytics are urged to append a tracking code to your URL and use an analytic service such as Google Analytics, which offers significant information at no cost, or to code your ad in some other way.
