My Position on Increasing Affordable Housing
Our country is facing an affordable housing crisis. Just in the state of Georgia, more than 654,000 renters pay more than 30% of their income toward rent. Without affordable housing, we cannot keep people in their homes and beloved neighborhoods, encourage first-generation homeownership, or close the racial wealth gap. To address the housing crisis, we must ensure every family who qualifies for rental assistance is able to get it, while also investing in affordable housing units near public transportation, grocery stores, schools, and the resources people need to thrive.
