Arlington City Councilwoman Lana Wolff is among 18 elected city leaders from across the country selected to serve on a newly created national task force that aims to address how communities can better respond to the growing challenge of housing availability, affordability, investment and quality.

The National League of Cities Task Force on Housing will develop a set of best and promising practices at the local level, as well as policy recommendations to federal and state governments.

"Every American deserves a place to call home. But in cities across the country, serious shortages of adequate housing means that too many residents don't have the security of a stable home," said National League of Cities President Karen Freeman-Wilson, who is also the mayor of Gary, Indiana. "Local leaders are on the frontlines of ensuring that residents have safe, affordable housing and through the formation of this task force we will leverage our collective experience to help solve this urgent challenge."

The National League of Cities Task Force on Housing's goals are consistent with Arlington City Council's priority to Champion Great Neighborhoods.
