Increase Housing Supply

We support efforts to increase the supply of affordable rental housing for people with extremely low incomes*.

We are in the midst of one of the worst rental affordability crises that our country has known. While many cities are experiencing a construction boom, the housing created is most often out of reach for families with extremely low incomes* (See data for the state of Connecticut.) As rents climb and wages remain stagnant, additional affordable housing is essential to prevent more individuals and families from falling into homelessness. *When we say “extremely low-income” we are referring to individuals with incomes about $6,000/year or $12,000/year for a family of 4, half of the federal poverty level.
