Support Grows for the YIMBY Act

October 8, 2019 | Up for Growth

WASHINGTON, DC – Twelve organizations joined Up for Growth Action in supporting the pro-housing the YIMBY (Yes in My Backyard) Act, which was recently introduced by Rep. Denny Heck (D-WA) and Trey Hollingsworth (R-IN) in conjunction with Up for Growth’s Legislative Advocacy Day. The YIMBY Act, or H.R. 4351, requires localities that receive Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding to publicly report on local policies that affect housing affordability and availability. It does not require that cities take action on any specific policy; rather it gives communities the opportunity to play a constructive role in solving the housing crisis. The bill was introduced by six Members of Congress – three from each party – and has since been co-sponsored by Ann Wagner (R-MO) here to read more.
