  • Today, there is a nationwide shortage of 7.1 million rental homes that are affordable and available to extremely low income households. This is why people are homeless in our country.
  • Once funded, the National Housing Trust Fund would address the shortage by providing states with funding to expand the supply of affordable rental homes.
  • The United for Homes proposal to modify the mortgage interest deduction would create almost $200 billion in revenue over ten years that could be used to fund the National Housing Trust Fund.
  • The United for Homes campaign proposes to reduce the size of a mortgage eligible for a tax break to $500,000, and convert the mortgage interest deduction to a 15% non-refundable tax credit.
  • The proposal benefits renters and homeowners. Under the United for Homes proposal, 16 million more homeowners would receive the tax break, 99% who would be low and middle income homeowners (households with incomes less than $100,000 a year).
  • More than 1,250 national, state, and local organizations and local governments have endorsed the United for Homes campaign.
