Posted By: Jon Lowder Blog ,

The National Apartment Association and National Multifamily Housing Council have announced the 2021 policy priorities for the apartment industry. Below is an overview/introduction and you can read the full one-pager here: https://www.naahq.org/sites/default/files/2021-nmhc-naa-policy-priorities-one-pager.pdf

Rental housing is a robust, diverse industry that provides a home for one-third of the nation, supports 17.5 million jobs and generates over $3.4 trillion in economic activity. The policy challenges facing the industry, especially in the age of COVID-19, are equal in scale and scope – touching every sector of the industry from new development to property management — and encompassing firms of all shapes and sizes. As their advocates, we focus on issues that reduce operational risk and enable efficient operations, preserve housing affordability and ensure the continued viability of rental housing providers for the long-term. For 2021, the industry’s priorities reflect the near-term concern of the housing crisis created by the COVID-19 pandemic and the broader need to maintain the health and competitiveness of the industry.

Next week, NAA will be hosting its annual Advocate event which will include virtual meetings with members of Congress. You can find out more here.
