Realtors® to Host Policy Forum Examining Housing Affordability in America

Jan 31, 2020 1:56 AM ET

WASHINGTON— As American communities confront low housing inventory and a prevailing lack of affordable housing options, the National Association of Realtors® will host an all-day event next Thursday, February 6, evaluating potential solutions to a problem plaguing markets across the country. NAR’s second annual Policy Forum will bring together hundreds of industry stakeholders, policymakers and academic experts to offer their unique insight on the U.S. housing market at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.

NAR and its 1.4 million members have made housing affordability one of the association’s top advocacy priorities in 2020. Panel sessions at the forum will discuss access to credit, racial homeownership gaps and tax policy affecting affordable housing and home ownership. NAR will also unveil new research papers regarding accessory dwelling units, zoning issues and the importance of tax incentives for homeownership. In addition, Department of Housing and Urban Development Deputy Secretary Brian Montgomery will address the group during a lunchtime keynote address.
