Kathy Castor [D-FL-11] Leads Fight for Affordable Housing Trust

U.S. Representative Kathy Castor (D-FL) led the fight for passage of the National Affordable Housing Trust Fund of 2007.

The landmark affordable housing trust fund established under this bill will provide over 1.5 million new affordable homes for hardworking families across America over the next decade. The bipartisan measure will focus on the construction, rehabilitation, and preservation of affordable housing. It will pool monies to target housing for families with the greatest economic need.
