How President-Elect Joe Biden Proposes To Change Housing Policies
Housing was not a major talking point in the 2020 election, but President-elect Joe Biden devised a blueprint to tackle major housing issues nonetheless.
The sweeping $640 billion, 10-year plan addresses everything from affordable housing to anti-discrimination policies.
Some commentators have called it a “comprehensive plan” for housing, while others say Biden is throwing big money at real problems without offering practical solutions.
Either way, Biden’s housing plan is likely just a wish list unless the Democrats can wrangle control of the Senate. Senate control comes down to two Georgia runoff elections on Jan. 5. If the Republicans keep control, Congress will remain divided, which will make it harder for Biden to push through his housing agenda.
