Affordable Housing

Affordable Housing

For too many families, affording a decent place to live has become almost impossible. It wasn’t always that way, and doesn’t have to be that way now. Congress can act to make the housing we already have more affordable, and to support the building of the additional housing we need. What Congress can best do is support local efforts by providing financing assistance for new construction and renovation, and rental assistance for those households that simply cannot afford to buy a home right now. Congress can also pass common sense legislation that addresses the issue of hedge funds buying up real estate and driving the market prices up. Source: 7/25/2022
