"Build Back Better: Investing in Equitable and Affordable Housing Infrastructure," House Financial Services Committee Testimony
April 14, 2021
PolicyLink President and CEO Michael McAfee testified before the House Financial Services Committee on Wednesday, April 14 about the need to center equity in all infrastructure policy decisions. He told the hearing on Build Back Better: Investing in Equitable and Affordable Housing Infrastructure that our nation is at a crossroads: if we fail to invest in housing and financial infrastructure, we will forfeit the opportunity to significantly improve the lives of the millions of people living in or near poverty. It's time to think big: an equitable, prosperous nation for all can be achieved only when our policymaking is commensurate with the scale of the challenges facing our society.
