It received recognition from the IRS as a public charity, under IRC sec. 501(c)(3), on September 19, 2008--as the "Center for Social Welfare under the American Constitutions" (CSWAC). (The organization adopted the trade name "Equitable Housing Institute" in 2010 (see certificate below).)

EHI is committed to minimizing administrative and fundraising expenses. In fact, EHI uses donations from persons not affiliated with it solely for its investigations, reports, advocacy, and other programs directly promoting affordable housing. No part of those donations goes toward administrative or fundraising expenses.
