  • Climate: Housing policy must include a renewed focus on incorporating sustainable, impactful and affordable building practices and disaster mitigation strategies to ensure that homes are more resilient to climate change. Incorporating climate resilience into development can support healthier and more economic homes for people who are at risk of bearing the brunt of climate impacts and reduce the risk of displacement resulting from damage caused by extreme weather or disasters.
  • Community Development: Programs aimed at funding schools, community facilities, and economic development have a proven record of success to help communities leverage their housing strategies to create dynamic, healthy places to live. The best way to expand the impact of community development tools is through adequate funding and sensible regulations, as well as expanding tax credit-driven programs to maximize private sector capital.
  • Health and Housing: Safe and stable housing is one of the most important social determinants of health, but federal policies on healthcare and housing are inefficiently siloed. Addressing the larger health and behavioral needs of communities through healthy housing initiatives has an outsized impact on the population’s health as a whole.
  • Homelessness: Adequate funding, good policy, and evidence-based program design are required to move people experiencing homelessness into permanent housing. Promoting affordable housing as a strategy to reduce the risk of homelessness through rental assistance, and increasing the supply of units affordable to extremely low-income households is vital to making sustainable reductions in homelessness.
  • Homeownership: Homeownership empowers individuals and families to build equity and stability in their lives. Through homeownership, communities can foster long-term investments, promote neighborhood revitalization, and create a sense of belonging, addressing the broader spectrum of housing needs.
  • Preservation: Preserving existing affordable housing is crucial amid increasing struggles for low-income households to find affordable homes, as new construction efforts have not kept pace with demand. This approach serves as a vital supplement to new developments, preventing displacement, offering cost-effective solutions, and aligning with existing land-use patterns.
  • Production/Supply: The supply of housing for extremely low through moderate-income Americans remains unsustainably inadequate. Reducing barriers to producing and preserving affordable housing, like exclusionary zoning, development fees on affordable housing, and other regulatory impediments to increasing supply are key components.
  • Racial Equity: Narrowing and ultimately closing the racial and ethnic homeownership gap is essential to the future prosperity of all Americans. Concentrated efforts to better assist Americans of AAPI, Black, Latino, and Native American racial and national origins are needed to effectively expand homeownership.
  • Regulatory Reform: The U.S. has a diverse set of regulations that contribute to the overall housing landscape and are designed in a manner that greatly impacts the availability of affordable housing. Ensuring that federal agencies are maximizing their capability to foster affordable housing and invest in communities through coordinated efforts provides large-scale opportunities to address housing challenges.
  • Rental Housing: Rental housing plays a pivotal role in addressing the affordable housing shortage by providing flexible and accessible housing options for individuals and families. Its importance lies in offering affordable alternatives to homeownership, catering to diverse socioeconomic backgrounds, and accommodating fluctuating housing needs.
  • Sustainability: Efforts to promote affordable housing and homeownership are ultimately only as effective as their sustainability. Lessons learned from programs during the COVID-19 pandemic and other disasters, including more loss mitigation options and flexible funding of emergency assistance, should be incorporated into long-term sustainability solutions.
  • Technology: Technical innovations help to better identify housing needs, drive the tools necessary to ensure a vibrant homeownership market, empower consumers to help meet their specific needs, and better support regulatory and enforcement efforts in combatting housing discrimination. We must foster ways to create housing opportunities by ensuring relevant agencies have the technology they need to better innovate, expand, and regulate housing.
