Valuing Affordability is a multi-year campaign to create a social, political and economic climate that values affordable housing. Through public awareness, political leadership, and sound policy and resource proposals, we can reverse the trend toward scarce and expensive housing. Together, government, nonprofit organizations, and informed business and community citizens can build strong neighborhoods by preserving affordable housing where it exists and creating opportunities for a wide variety of housing in all communities.
Valuing Affordability is based on the belief that affordable housing benefits all residents and institutions and is necessary for a successful city and region; sufficient public resources must be committed to meet real neighborhood needs at living rent levels; strong and affordable neighborhoods require supportive public policies to prevent displacement, promote preservation and encourage production; and affordable housing must be included in all new real estate development.
