Our elected leaders on both sides of the political aisle are going to have a lot to say about President Obama’s proposed federal budget in the weeks and months ahead. But one area is likely to continue escaping attention in the wake of the proposal’s release: the availability of affordable rental housing.
The president’s budget request would increase funding for the Department of Housing and Urban Development – the agency tasked with providing American housing options and assisting community development – by $4 billion, or 8.7 percent, above current levels. The casual observer might assume the lion’s share of this increase will go to helping more Americans buy their own homes. On the contrary, the majority of the hike will go to fund programs that help renters afford to put a roof over their head.

There is a problem with the U.S. housing market that few are willing to admit.
The country is experiencing job growth, unemployment rates have dropped and hourly wages have started to increase for lower-income workers. The overall U.S. economy has mostly recovered from the 2007-2009 recession. The housing sector has not.
It’s time for a new conversation about U.S. housing policies.
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s goal in 2015 is to increase homeownership rates. But, there is a distinct possibility that homeownership rates will never return to their pre-recession levels given the number of young Americans who either cannot or will not buy homes.
