Federal Versus State Administration of Rental Housing Assistance

Resolved that NAHB urge Congress to maintain the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher program as a federally administered program under the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and to avoid converting it to a block grant administered by the states or other entities within the states as proposed in the Housing Assistance for Needy Families Act of 2003.

Further resolved that NAHB continue to urge Congress to provide adequate funding for the program including funding for incremental vouchers.

Further resolved that NAHB urge HUD to work with the housing industry to identify and implement potential improvements for the Section 8 program.
