LARGO, MD - This afternoon, Congressman Steny H. Hoyer (MD-05) received a briefing from Prince George's County's "Housing Opportunities for All" Workgroup. The Workgroup was established by the Prince George's County Council in April 2019 and is charged with setting priorities and implementing the Comprehensive Housing Strategy Report.
"Ensuring access to affordable housing in Prince George's County is a critically important issue," said Congressman Hoyer. "Home ownership and access to affordable rental homes are out of reach for many residents in our communities. I appreciated the opportunity to learn more about the efforts of the ‘Housing Opportunity for All’ Workgroup and the steps they are taking to remove barriers to affordable housing while working to produce new housing options for lower income families."
"In order to strengthen our communities, we must ensure that all of our residents have access to affordable and safe housing," continued Congressman Hoyer. "I commend the Workgroup on the important steps they are taking to improve access to housing for all Prince Georgians. In Congress, I will continue to support federal housing assistance programs and fight against attempts by the Trump Administration to cut funding for housing and community development programs."
