Terner Center Releases Federal Housing Policy Framework, Calls for Universal Housing Assistance

The Terner Center for Housing Innovation at the University of California at Berkeley released a report outlining a new framework for federal housing policy, “Building a Better Ladder of Housing Opportunity in the United States.” The report provides recommendations for how the administration can expand and better target demand-side housing subsidies. These include Housing Choice Vouchers (HCVs), expanding and coordinating supply subsidies for affordable housing construction, and strengthening incentives and accountability to meet housing production goals, further fair housing and lending objectives, and promote sustainable development. Several of the framework’s proposals, such as expanding rental assistance to all extremely low-income and very low-income renter households that need such assistance, align with the HoUSed campaign priorities.
