New Report Finds Housing Need in the Millions

New Democrat Coalition

A new report, Missing Millions of Homes, published by the New Democrat Coalition, concludes there is a need for millions of housing units to be constructed across the country. The report focuses on the housing affordability crisis, and the inability for unit construction to keep pace with demand.  
The Coalition presents a seemingly simple solution: we need to build more housing.

Additionally, barriers such as restrictive zoning and land use regulation, as well as lack of funding, have stifled new construction.
