CHCDF Series on Housing as Infrastructure

The Campaign for Housing and Community Development Funding (CHCDF), a group of more than 60 national organizations dedicated to adequate federal housing and community development funding for lower income families and communities, is running a blog series outlining why affordable housing is a critical component of our nation’s infrastructure in need of federal investments. Organizations participating in the blog series represent a broad array of housing needs, including senior, rural, and public housing.

Policymakers from both sides of the aisle agree that a significant federal investment in infrastructure should be a top national priority. Affordable housing is an essential element in any infrastructure package not only because housing informs other infrastructure needs, but because it provides an enduring investment in economic growth.
