This is the July 20, 2021 hearing on "Building Back a Better, More Equitable Housing Infrastructure for America: Oversight of the Department of Housing and Urban Development," held before the U.S. house Committee on Financial Services. From the opening statement of Maxine Waters: "[The] Key to building back better and more equitably is understanding that housing is infrastructure. For the first time in a generation, we have a real opportunity to fix structural problems in our housing system and reverse decades of disinvestment in low-income communities and communities of color. Last week I, and several members of this committee introduced a legislative package of three bills to do just that. The first is the Housing is Infrastructure Act, the second is the Ending Homelessness Act, and the third is the Downpayment Toward Equity Act, which would help address the racial gap in homeownership by providing $100 billion toward down payment and other financial assistance for first-generation home buyers." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Marcia L. Fudge.
