Congresswoman Adams recognizes that the importance of housing is based on the understanding that the issue affects each and every one of us, whether you are rich or poor, and regardless of your ethnicity. Everyone in this country deserves a decent, affordable place to call home. By making housing affordable, Congress can position individuals to become homeowners, who will undoubtedly strengthen the middle class and the overall economy.
She has continuously worked to protect home buyers by voting against measures that remove housing counseling and important disclosure requirements when receiving a mortgage. She also supports measures that will promote affordable housing for some of our most vulnerable communities including seniors, low income families, and veterans.
