On April 16, the Housing, Transportation and Community Development Subcommittee of the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs held a hearing on Challenges in Preserving the U.S. Housing Stock. The witnesses (Jesse Ergott with NeighborWorks, Robin Wollf with Enterprise Community Partners and Chistopher Volzke with the Wyoming Community Development Authority) focused primarily on rural communities, owner-occupied housing and the CDBG and HOME programs. Subcommittee Chair Tina Smith (D-MN) and Senator Cynthia Lummis (R-WY) discussed the possibility of bundling several bipartisan housing-related bills for a mark-up in the full committee.
