Federal Issues


The federal issues impacting the apartment industry are vast, ranging from housing finance reform to tax reform to regulatory concerns. Overarching these complex issues is the need for Congress to create a balanced housing policy that recognizes the critical role of apartments in providing shelter for Americans. One-third of all Americans rent their housing, and 38 million of them live in an apartment home. 

For more than 20 years, the National Multifamily Housing Council (NMHC) and the National Apartment Association (NAA) have partnered on behalf of America's apartment industry. NAA and NMHC along with more than 170 NAA state and local affiliated organizations - including AAGD - provide a single voice for owners and operators of multifamily rental housing.
