NRHC Responds to Article Highlighting Efforts to Prevent Access to Rental Housing

Washington, D.C. (March 31, 2022) – The National Rental Home Council (NRHC) issued the following statement in response to The Washington Post article, “Corporate landlords are gobbling up U.S. suburbs. These homeowners are fighting back.”, posted on March 31.

“Acting on outdated and irrelevant stereotypes about renters and single-family rental home providers serves no purpose but to ignore the importance of the rental housing market in meeting the needs of millions of American families. This is an industry working continuously to provide more options for stabilized, quality, and affordably-priced housing in neighborhoods that should be accessible to everyone,” said David Howard, executive director of the National Rental Home Council. “Restricting access to neighborhoods and communities simply because a family chooses to rent is not something to encourage or tolerate. The only reason to restrict rentals in a community is to keep renters out. There is no room in America’s housing market for such practice.”

About NRHC – The National Rental Home Council (NRHC) is the nonprofit trade association representing the single-family rental home industry.
