Housing

The housing sector strengthens our economy by consistently generating more than one-fifth of U.S. gross domestic product. Quality housing is also the building block for safe and stable neighborhoods in our nation. Unfortunately, many families cannot afford the American dream of owning their own home. To boost home ownership, Congressman Lee Terry has:

  • Voted for legislation to help more than 40,000 low-income and minority families become homeowners
  • Supported incentives for developers to produce more affordable rental housing to address critical shortages
  • Cosponsored legislation to improve the financing of affordable housing production, and make home mortgage insurance premiums tax-deductible.

Lee Terry will continue to work toward increasing affordable, quality housing, and to close the minority homeownership gap.
