Sheila Crowley, president of the National Low Income Housing Coalition, will be speaking at a community meeting Thursday, Oct. 3, in Royal Oak about the national United for Homes campaign proposal to help bring more affordable housing to Oakland County.

The campaign proposal seeks to fund the National Housing Trust Fund through modifications to the mortgage interest deduction. Crowley will discuss how this will benefit local housing initiatives in Oakland County, where there is a shortage of affordable rental units for those with extremely low income (those with incomes at or below 30 percent of the Area Median Income).

Crowley is a national expert on issues of affordable housing and well-versed in the policy debates taking place in Washington right now. She will also discuss the state of national housing policy including housing finance reform, the future of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and the outlook for the federal budget process and appropriations.

The event, 7-8:30 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 3, at the First United Methodist Church, 320 W. Seventh St., Royal Oak, is hosted by the Alliance for Housing, Oakland County’s Continuum of Care. Attendees are encouraged to contribute to the discussion and to bring questions and may register at http://bit.ly/19CaFnt
