Congressman Blumenauer Recommends Strategies to Address Affordable Housing Crisis

Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) has released a housing report, “Locked Out: Reversing Federal Housing Failures and Unlocking Opportunity.” The report offers strategies the federal government could pursue to meaningfully address the nation’s housing affordability challenges – including expanding the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit program, making HUD’s Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers an entitlement program to cover everyone eligible, creating a renter’s tax credit to support low-income households and providing federal incentives for communities to end exclusionary zoning.
