U.S. Senator Introduces Yes In My Backyard Act to Encourage Communities to Cut Regulations and Increase Housing Supply

On June 20, 2019 U.S. Senator Todd Young (R-Ind.) introduced the Yes In My Backyard (YIMBY) Act to shed light on discriminatory land use policies, encourage localities cut burdensome regulations, and bring a new level of transparency to the community development process. Instead of adopting inclusive land use policies that allow citizens of all income levels, backgrounds, and identities to live, work, and flourish in their city or town, some communities are building paper walls of regulations around themselves that negatively affect and sometimes discriminate against low- and middle-income Americans.

Founded in 1997, the Texas Affiliation of Affordable Housing Providers (TAAHP) is a non-profit trade association serving as the primary advocate and leading resource for the affordable housing industry in Texas. Our vision is to inspire and engage our members and stakeholders to end the affordable housing crisis in Texas.
