Rising housing costs are creating hardships for millions of households and taking a toll on economic growth and productivity. One major reason for the worsening housing affordability problem is that we are simply not building enough housing as a nation, especially in the job-rich regions where housing demand is greatest. Local zoning and land use regulations, and the related development review processes, make it increasingly difficult to build new housing in many communities, leading to inadequate housing supply and higher housing costs.
