Congresswoman Maxine Waters

Representing the 43rd District of California

Housing

Homeownership has long been a central element of the American Dream.  However, millions of American families are now at risk of losing their homes to foreclosure.

 
I am focused on finding solutions that will lead us out of both the immediate housing crisis and the larger financial crisis.

 

Even before analysts and the press were focusing on our current housing crisis, I was working tirelessly to help struggling renters make their monthly payments, which can be as high as half of their income. It’s easy to sometimes forget about this substantial portion of Americans, but it is critical that we continue to support these families.

 

I am committed to doing everything in my power to keep Americans in their homes. I have been at the forefront of encouraging and promoting loan modifications, housing counseling and mortgage servicer reform. I also am dedicated to fully funding our nation’s public housing and expanding the number of housing choice vouchers so that our nation’s most at-risk individuals can access the safe, decent and affordable housing of their choice.

 

This housing crisis developed over many years through neglect, so moving forward it is important to fully fund our nation’s housing programs.
