The NRHC firmly believes in the importance of fostering public policies that incentivize homeownership and offer Americans access and the opportunity to purchase a home. But we also recognize that homeownership is not the right option for everyone at every point in their lives.
- The NRHC believes all Americans should be supported by policies that provide access to quality housing, no matter where they are on the continuum of renting or owning.
Renters deserve the same commitment from policymakers that homeowners are afforded: improved access and choice, and the opportunity to reside in a high-quality home.
- We encourage our residents to be good citizens and active, involved members of their community. Their presence in neighborhoods should never be marginalized.
- Single-family rental homes are not a bet against homeownership. Rather, they are an important piece of a vibrant housing market and, for many, are a stepping stone to homeownership.
