Congresswoman Joyce Beatty

Affordable Housing


Beatty on Housing

Owning a home has long been at the cornerstone of the American Dream.

That is why I will continue to support and develop programs that make home ownership more accessible to the average American. This is especially important as Central Ohio remains one of the fastest growing areas of the country. At the same time, we must ensure that renters’ rights are protected and expanded to protect against abusive and discriminatory housing practices.

Highlights of Beatty Work on Housing and Affordability

  • Author of the Housing Financial Literacy Act to provide first-time homebuyers a discount on their mortgage insurance premium if they complete a financial counseling program.
  • Secured $25 million to revitalize Columbus’ Near East side.
  • Supports funding for housing assistance programs.
  • Supports funding for McKinney Vento Homeless Assistance grants.
