NAIOPWA Endorses the Housing Supply and Affordability Act

We need housing near jobs, transit, and opportunity. The Housing Supply and Affordability Act (HSAA) creates a new Local Housing Policy Grant (LHPG) program administered by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The proposed program would provide grants to states, localities, tribes, and regional municipal and county coalitions to support local efforts to expand housing supply.

The HSAA complements legislation such as the bipartisan Yes in My Backyard (YIMBY) Act, which encourages local governments to eliminate exclusionary zoning and discriminatory land-use policies by providing the resources and capacity to enable entities to enact said policies.

NAIOP Washington State has endorsed this bill, which improves housing access and affordability. As a member of Up for Growth, NAIOPWA remains committed to working with public officials to address the housing shortage. You can find more information on HSAA here.
