Affordable Housing

Expand federal investment in affordable housing development. NIMBY (“not in my back yard”) policies and zoning laws have made the creation of affordable housing impossible in areas that are most in need of new housing, driving workers for those areas to multi-hour commutes. 

  • Universal basic income is portable. Flexibility in mobility. 

  • Work with localities to relax zoning ordinances for the purpose of increasing the development of affordable housing.

  • Encourage the building of new innovative housing options like micro-apartments and communal living for people in high-density urban areas.

  • Explore innovative financing mechanisms such as a common ownership self-assessed tax and continuous public auction to incentivize affordable housing development
