Statement from the National Multifamily Housing Council (NMHC) and the National Apartment Association (NAA) responding to President Biden’s remarks regarding investing in housing:
"NMHC and NAA understand our nation’s housing affordability challenges and call for responsible and sustainable solutions that will ensure the viability of rental housing options for all Americans.
"We stand ready to continue working with the Administration to identify solutions that will address the national rental housing shortage.
"It is only through the combined partnership of the rental housing industry and the government that real policy solutions will be developed that benefit housing providers and residents alike."
For more than 26 years, the National Multifamily Housing Council (NMHC) and the National Apartment Association (NAA) have partnered on behalf of America's apartment industry. Drawing on the knowledge and policy expertise of staff in Washington, D.C., as well as the advocacy power of 145 NAA state and local affiliated associations, NAA and NMHC provide a single voice for developers, owners and operators of multifamily rental housing. One-third of all Americans rent their housing, and 38.9 million of them live in an apartment home.
