Synopsis

Housing instability is one of the biggest barriers to individual economic prosperity. Conversely , it has become clear that housing stability at an early age leads to better outcomes for health, job security, and economic mobility for our nation’s residents. The housing policy choices we make today will have a generational impact on America’s cities, towns, and villages. This workshop will cover innovative and data-driven proposals advancing at both the federal and local level that show how local governments can be part of the solution to housing instability and homelessness. You will also learn about promising bipartisan housing bills NLC has endorsed to inform your advocacy on the hill.

Three Key Takeaways:

Understand how the bipartisan Eviction Crisis Act would create new tools for local governments to increase housing stability by reducing evictions. Hear how the bipartisan Family Stability and Opportunity Vouchers Act would create additional housing vouchers specifically designed for low-income families with young children. Learn about the report the White House Council on Eliminating Barriers to Affordable Housing is writing with recommendations for removing local rules and regulations that “impede the production of affordable homes.”
