Study Shows Widespread Concern About Affordable Housing

Monday, June 17, 2002 - 7:00AM

Forty-one percent of working families believe the lack of affordable homes is a very or fairly big problem as compared to the lack of affordable health care, unemployment or crime, according to a new study released Sunday by the Fannie Mae Foundation. The study found a broad base of support for government leadership on the problem. Sixty-five percent of Americans agree that local government should provide leadership, while 59 percent say the federal government should take action. The survey found that at least 7 in 10 adults supported a variety of policy measures to address the lack of affordable homes with roles for the government, private and nonprofit sectors.
