Housing Affordability 


Housing affordability is an issue growing in significance for the Washington, DC metropolitan area with each passing year, as more households and jobs flock to a region that is failing to produce enough housing to meet rising demand. In response, the region's premiere organization representing multifamily property owners and managers has laid out a comprehensive analysis of effective proactive measures to increase housing supply and promote affordability.  

AOBA’s Housing Affordability Whitepaper analyzes the state of rental housing in the region, explains why certain demand-side housing policies are ineffective, and puts forth a set of policies endorsed by the Maryland State Department of Housing and Community Development that would help alleviate affordability pressures in the region.
