Earlier this month the National League of Cities (NLC) released a comprehensive affordable housing report entitled "Homeward Bound: The Road to Affordable Housing"
Rising home prices and stagnant wages have put tremendous strain on housing markets across the country. Housing is in a state of crisis in America — and cities, towns and villages are on the front lines. More than 20 local leaders from across the country came together to form the National League of Cities (NLC) Housing Task Force to help address the issues related to safe and affordable housing. This report is the product of that work. In this report, you will find:
- An analysis of the factors that caused the housing crisis
- Case studies of cities implementing innovative solutions
- Recommendations for both local and federal leaders

NLC Service Line Warranty Program partners with municipalities to educate homeowners and offer affordable protection against potentially costly service line repairs. The Program uses a network of local plumbers who have gone through background and drug screenings. The Program’s 500-seat call center is staffed 24/7/365 to answer claims calls and dispatch contractors to address homeowners’ emergencies. The Program is provided at no cost to cities, and partner municipalities can receive royalties based on participation. To find out how you can help your residents achieve peace of mind, contact us.
