Washington, D.C. (January 25, 2023) – the National Rental Home Council (NRHC) issued the following statement today following the release of the White House’s Blueprint for a Renters Bill of Rights:
The care and concern of residents is a top priority of NRHC members. However, rather than focusing on additional oversight initiatives and regulatory barriers that constrain the ability of rental housing providers to do what they do best – provide more housing – NRHC encourages policymakers at all levels to work collaboratively with industry to spur new development and housing investment. We believe this to be the most effective way to alleviate current and future housing supply challenges and to address the needs of residents.
NRHC and our members are fully engaged in the effort to meet the demand for quality, affordably priced, rental housing in safe, well-located neighborhoods. Owners of single-family rental homes are committed to the communities in which they invest and build, by providing families with more options for housing to meet the needs of local residents. As part of that commitment, NRHC and our members support government policies and regulations that: provide more homes and housing options; defend property rights and neighborhoods; oppose segregation and discrimination against renters; increase housing investment through free market rates; make more homes available to responsible residents; and assist communities in times of need.
There is a greater need for housing – owner-occupied and rental – in the U.S. today than there has been in decades, and single-family rental home providers are an important part of the solution. By making long-term, innovative commitments to the communities in which we invest and build, single-family rental home providers – large and small – are providing a viable source of stabilized, enduring, single-family rental housing responsive to the needs and lifestyle preferences of today’s housing consumer.
The National Rental Home Council (NRHC) is the nonprofit trade association representing the single-family rental home industry. NRHC members provide families and individuals with access to high-quality, single-family rental homes that contribute to the vitality and vibrancy of neighborhoods and communities.
