Should everyone own a home?

By The Policy Circle Team

As Housing America states: “Without safe, decent and affordable housing, children won’t get the education they need; seniors will be unable to age in place; veterans and people with disabilities will not be surrounded and supported by community, and families will be unable to thrive.”

Is owning a home still a crucial part of the American Dream?  And what about housing for those for whom it has been a perennial struggle?  

Government, at all levels, plays a large role in creating access to affordable housing for those in need. While some programs help bridge the gap for a rent payment, others encourage a path to home ownership — but not without consequences.  

In its new brief on Housing, The Policy Circle takes a look at housing policy, particularly affordable housing in America, to help you better understand government involvement in housing, what this has meant for affordable housing programs and housing values, and the trends related to housing and the American Dream.

Without recognizing and correcting policy mistakes made in the past, we are likely to find ourselves in yet another housing crisis of our own making.


It’s a movement!

Recommend a Circle Leader.  Especially in Georgia, California, Wisconsin, and Michigan, Kansas and Arizona where circles are sprouting.

Start a Circle in your community. Your community may be your profession or your neighborhood, or both. The Policy Circle is a simple way to practice the language of leaders with the facts and the space to be at ease with weighing in on the impact of policy.   

Invest in The Policy Circle. Together let’s build a network of women who want to be part of the dialogue on the impact of policy in their lives.  

The Policy Circle is a 501(c)3 that provides a fact-based, nonpartisan framework built to inspire women living in the same community to connect, learn about and discuss economic policies that impact their lives.  Women across the nation are taking a leadership role in the public policy dialogue on what human creativity can accomplish in an open economy.
