Joe Ventrone believes that HUD and federal housing policy need a radical realignment. After over 40 years of industry experience in the private sector, Congress, HUD, and federal agencies, he believes housing policy is in a ‘sorry state of affairs.’
He says HUD has outlived its usefulness in some ways, with too many policies dictates instead of flexibility for states and local officials to make their own decisions. Policy makers must focus on creating inventory, rethinking how rent control works, and creative solutions.
Despite the challenges, Ventrone shares insights from his long career, and has optimism about new ideas and bipartisanship taking coming out of the challenging environment in Washington.
