The housing crisis has made clear that achieving an adequate supply of appropriately-priced housing should be a principal policy concern for our nation. Across the country, incomes have not kept pace with rising housing prices. As a result, families today expend a far higher proportion of their income for housing than ever before. This has disproportionately impacted young, poor, minority, and working class populations. As a thought leader and one of the nation’s largest nonprofit developers of affordable housing, National CORE has commissioned groundbreaking studies on this issue to explore how the market can begin to produce an adequate supply of housing that is affordable for families.
