New Report Confronts Housing Policy Myths

Twelve national groups sponsor a congressional briefing to rebut three myths undermining a balanced national housing policy in Washington.

"The myths are: 1) subsidized housing is unnecessary and, left on its own, the market will provide safe, decent and affordable housing for everyone; 2) today, federal government housing subsidies go disproportionately and "unwisely"; to "undeserving" low-income renters in urban areas; and 3) homeownership is the best housing option for everyone, all the time, everywhere."
