NLIHC President and CEO Diane Yentel participated last week in a follow-up meeting at the White House on housing supply and affordability. Held in the Roosevelt Room of the White House’s West Wing, the meeting included White House officials Brian Deese (director of the National Economic Council), Susan Rice (director of the Domestic Policy Council), Marcia L. Fudge (secretary of HUD), Sandra Thompson (director of the Federal Housing Finance Agency), and Gene Sperling (senior advisor to the president). Other attendees included the CEOs of the National Association of Realtors, National Multifamily Housing Council, Mortgage Bankers Association, National Association of Home Builders, National Fair Housing Alliance, Affordable Housing Tax Credit Coalition, National Council on State Housing Agencies, and National Housing Conference. The meeting focused on legislative and administrative housing priorities for the remainder of this year and served as a follow-up for a similar meeting held in September. NLIHC appreciated the opportunity to continue sharing our priorities concerning efforts to get and keep the lowest-income people housed with senior officials from the Biden administration, and we look forward to a continuing partnership with the White House to increase housing supply and affordability and protect low-income renters and people experiencing homelessness.
