“Housing is most Americans’ largest expense. Decent and affordable housing has a demonstrable impact on family stability and the life outcomes of children. Decent housing is an indispensable building block of healthy neighborhoods, and this shapes the quality of life…better housing can lead to better outcomes for individuals, communities, and American society as a whole. In short, housing matters.”
