WASHINGTON, DC: A diverse group of affordable housing leaders, including National Housing Conference President and Chief Executive Officer David Dworkin, met with National Economic Council Director Brian Deese, Housing and Urban Development Secretary Marcia Fudge, and Federal Housing Finance Agency Director Sandra Thompson, and Senior Advisor to the President Gene Sperling today to discuss legislative, administrative, private sector, and state and local actions to address housing supply and affordability challenges across the country.
The candid discussion demonstrated broad agreement on bipartisan approaches to increase housing supply and meet our shared commitment to address the critical housing needs of all Americans. We look forward to continuing to work together with leaders in Congress and the Administration.
NHC’s top housing priorities for the remainder of 2022 include passage of the Affordable Housing Credit Improvement Act and Neighborhood Homes Investment Act. These bills would add over 2.5 million units of affordable housing over the next ten years and have strong bipartisan support.
