Housing Affordability Coalition statement on congressional letter on housing policy solutions

156

19 national real estate associations joined together to release a letter to policymakers urging Congress to work with the Biden Administration, housing providers, lenders and other stakeholders to pursue bipartisan solutions to increase the supply of housing in all markets and at all price points.

This Housing Affordability Coalition represents a broad coalition of housing providers committed to working together with policymakers and the Administration to address America’s housing affordability crisis.

Included in the letter linked here are bipartisan recommendations that policymakers should immediately take action on that we believe would have a positive impact on the housing affordability crisis and help increase the nation’s housing supply.

Housing has always been a bipartisan issue. Policymakers at every level of government have a role to play in removing obstacles to housing production and preservation and in addressing the housing affordability challenges that have faced this country for decades.

Using a combination of incentive-based programs, streamlined regulatory burdens and innovative solutions, the Coalition stands ready to work with Congress and the Administration to address the housing affordability challenges faced by communities across the nation.
