No doubt there are many distractions in Washington these days, including the fight over U.S. Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland, the presidential campaign and party convention planning. However, as always, NMHC remains laser focused on keeping the concerns of the multifamily industry front and center.
As highlighted recently in outreach to NMHC membership, Clyde Holland, chairman and CEO of Holland Partner Group, testified on Capitol Hill last month before a subcommittee of the House Financial Services Committee on the challenge of meeting the increasing demand for multifamily homes for millions of working Americans.
During the hearing entitled, “The Future of Housing in America: Government Regulations and the High Cost of Housing,” Holland outlined the key reasons why America faces a growing affordability problem - stagnant wages, a supply-demand imbalance and numerous hurdles and regulations in developing new apartments - along with potential solutions. This is the type of opportunity where NMHC was able to effectively educate members of Congress on the importance our industry.
The advocacy work of NMHC is complemented by the role of the NMHC PAC. The PAC’s mission is to support the apartment industry's legislative goals and educate Congress about multifamily housing issues. Funds are raised from NMHC members and then utilized to assist with electing and reelecting our industry's legislative champions. Ultimately, this enables NMHC’s legislative team to establish and continue to build relationships with the members of Congress who will play critical roles on issues that affect our industry.
