The Challenge We Face
The rapid rise in cost of living remains a top concern for voters this year, as housing is the largest expense for many American households. Home prices have risen nearly 30% since 2019, and on average, housing comprises 33% of Americans’ household income.

Renters are also struggling to find affordable units. Since 2020, the median rental cost has increased by about 18%, making it more difficult for aspiring homeowners to save for a down-payment.

The federal government plays a central role in advancing policies that will increase housing production and address affordability challenges we need them to understand.
