Communication Tools for Federal Leadership on Housing

Communication Tools for Federal Leadership on Housing

Understanding the Housing Crisis at America's Door is Now Just a Click Away

Up for Growth Action has developed a new online tool, the Housing Market Affordability Indicators Dashboard, and a communications toolkit to provide those passionate about housing policy the data and research needed to better understand how key housing indicators are affecting metropolitan areas in the U.S. 

The toolkit has background, statistics, and academic research on some of the policy areas and societal issues directly and indirectly affected by housing, including land and infrastructure use, the cost of housing, environmental and air quality concerns, housing equity, urbanization, and combatting the outsized influence of NIMBYism.

Accessible and compelling facts and data are needed to change the policy conversation about housing. Our new communications toolkit provides the information needed to better understand – and talk about - how metropolitan areas across the United States have been affected by the housing shortage and affordability crisis, building on our previous state-level research on housing underproduction.

We hope these tools are used far and wide by lawmakers, candidates, activists, and others who know we can and must take a different approach to housing.
