Hearing from his constituents about the lack of affordable housing, Sen. Todd Young (R-Ind.) is making the issue a priority.
To better understand and respond to the nation’s affordable housing crisis, Young, along with Sens. Angus King (I-Maine), Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.), and six other bipartisan senators, introduced the Task Force on the Impact of the Affordable Housing Crisis Act in July.
In May, Young introduced legislation to incentivize greater choice and mobility in the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Housing Choice Voucher program. The bill would help households live and work closer to high-opportunity areas. He also is a co-sponsor of the Affordable Housing Credit Improvement Act.
Young, who was elected to the U.S. Senate in 2016 and previously served three terms in the House of Representatives,will discuss his affordable housing work during the keynote presentation at Affordable Housing Finance’s AHF Live: The Affordable Housing Developers Summit, which will be Nov. 12-14 at the Hyatt Regency Chicago.
Attendees also will hear from Eugene Jones Jr., CEO at the Chicago Housing Authority (CHA). Jones has been responsible for implementing CHA’s redevelopment program of public housing and continuing the agency’s mixed-income initiative to help build strong and vibrant communities in the Windy City.
Attendance is reserved for people who are primarily owners and developers of affordable housing, plus state and local housing finance agency representatives and nonprofit groups focused on the business of affordable housing.
