Vermont lawmakers hear about changes needed to housing system

Posted May 2, 2013

By Leslie Black-Plumeau. Reposted from Housing Matters, May 1, 2013.

“National housing expert Nan Roman of the Bipartisan Policy Center told members of the Vermont House General, Housing & Military Affairs Committee today what it will take to strengthen the national mortgage finance system while creating a stable and strong housing market and better meeting the needs of the nation’s most vulnerable residents.

Ms. Roman described the Center’s newly released report, Housing America’s Future: New Directions for National Policy, which recommends a myriad of changes to federal housing support levels and the delivery mechanisms through which it is provided.

Expanding the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit by 50 percent over current levels to increase housing supply and targeting a reformed Housing Choice Voucher program to the most vulnerable households are also among the Center’s recommendations.

In addition to being a commissioner on the Bipartisan Policy Center’s Housing Commission, Ms. Roman is Executive Director of the National Alliance to End Homelessness.”

NAEH releases “State of Homelessness in America 2013” report

Posted April 10, 2013

The National Alliance to End Homelessness released its third annual assessment of homelessness in America, the State of Homelessness in America 2013. The report analyzes national as well as state-by-state trends and the economic, housing, and demographic factors that impact homelessness. 

In spite of declines in incomes and affordable housing, federal investments in smart strategies have led to significant declines in chronic and veteran homelessness. However, worsening economic and housing indicators threaten progress. And recent budget cuts could mean less investment in solutions that have led to declines in homelessness, like permanent supportive housing for chronically homeless individuals and homeless assistance funding for communities.
