This year’s Advocate, acutely focused on issues of housing affordability, seeks to make real, sustained progress on increasing supply and preventing adverse policies from taking root. The industry’s advocates will speak to Members of Congress about:
  Yes in My Backyard (YIMBY) Act: Bipartisan legislation in the House and Senate that encourages the elimination of discriminatory land-use policies and removal of barriers that prevent needed housing from being built;
  Section 8 Reform: Streamline the program to enable more owners and operators to provide more homes to individuals who qualify for vouchers; and
  Evictions: Work to provide meaningful assistance to residents who need it while avoiding burdensome new requirements.

Please stay tuned to NAA for more information on these policies in the coming weeks.

The rental housing industry has a critical role to play in housing affordability conversations happening right now on Capitol Hill, and there is no better time to lend your voice than during the National Apartment Association’s (NAA) annual advocacy event, Advocate, March 10-11 in Washington, D.C.

Take Affordability Answers to Congress.

Complex challenges in the marketplace are driving governmental interest in rental housing to levels not seen in more than 50 years! It's important than ever before for our industry to ensure that we are a part of these conversations shaping housing policy in the U.S.
