NAA Statement on 2020 Elections
ARLINGTON, VA | November 4, 2020 – The National Apartment Association (NAA) released the following statement from Bob Pinnegar, NAA President and CEO, regarding the 2020 elections:
The National Apartment Association (NAA) is closely following the 2020 election results and welcomes the opportunity to work with the next Administration and members of the 117th U.S. Congress to ensure the unique needs and challenges facing the apartment industry are addressed with responsible, sustainable policies. Housing is a foundational issue for every American and the 40 million people who call apartments home – alongside the 17.5 million jobs supported by the industry – deserve the full attention of our elected leaders.
We look forward to moving ahead and continue our calls for swift passage of critical COVID-19 relief legislation, including a robust rental assistance program. The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic is fueling our nation’s housing affordability crisis and no immediate relief is on the horizon. Our elected officials must address the needs, concerns and challenges of rental housing providers and renters alike to stabilize the future of America’s housing.
The National Apartment Association (NAA) serves as the leading voice and preeminent resource through advocacy, education and collaboration on behalf of the rental housing industry. As a federation of 152 affiliates, NAA encompasses over 85,000 members representing more than 10 million apartment homes globally. NAA believes that rental housing is a valuable partner in every community that emphasizes integrity, accountability, collaboration, community responsibility, inclusivity and innovation.
