Affordable House and the American Dream

  • 555 Pennsylvania Avenue Northwest (The Newseum) Washington, DC, 20001 United States (map)


For many Americans, particularly African Americans and Hispanics, the process of buying a home presents more than the usual challenges. Studies show that the rates of minority homeownership continue to lag behind those of their white counterparts. Lower incomes, higher mortgage rates, student debt and a lack of access to credit are just a few of the obstacles that exist on their journey to own a home.

What can be done to combat the racial inequities that continue to pervade the home buying process? What policies can be put in place to help ensure that every American can have an equal opportunity of owning a home, long considered a central pillar of the American dream?

During National Homeownership Month, The Hill will gather key administration and congressional leaders, housing experts and advocacy groups for a solutions-focused discussion on closing the nation’s growing homeownership gap.


  • Rep. Steve Stivers (R-OH), Co-Chair, Congressional Public Housing Caucus

  • Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO), Co-Chair, Congressional Public Housing Caucus
