A lack of housing choices is associated with decreased economic mobility. Longer and more expensive commutes mean less time with our families and friends, and more money spent on gas and maintenance.
In extreme cases, lack of housing choices concentrates poverty and accelerates economic inequality.
Inadequate housing choices create economic and social ripples through a community that are difficult to fix.
That’s exactly why we are focused on this issue. Our Housing for Community Initiative concentrates on expanding housing choices and affordability in smart locations – close to existing infrastructure and within existing neighborhoods.
