Looking Forward: Enterprise's Policy Focus in 2017
As I said soon after the election, the work that we do in affordable housing and community development has never felt more important. We are at a pivotal moment, both as a sector and as a nation. Now more than ever, we must work together to identify the most urgent policy priorities, elevate key issues on the national agenda and powerfully advocate in a unified voice.
We're deeply committed to working with both sides of the political aisle to advocate for inclusive communities of opportunity across the country – Enterprise will work with members of the Trump administration and the 115th Congress with an eye toward bipartisan solutions that can be enacted in 2017.
Currently, we see five major areas of focus for Enterprise’s federal policy efforts in 2017. Browse the topics below for a deep dive into these issues.
As we keep fighting for policies at all levels of government that create opportunities for low-income families, Enterprise will continue to develop bold new programmatic and capital solutions to our country’s most pressing housing and economic problems.
