The National Housing Conference held its Annual Budget Forum Feb. 24, 2012 at the Capitol Visitor Center. The aim of the forum was to provide attendees with a better understanding of the very real challenges facing housing in  FY2013.

At the Budget Forum, the Center for Housing Policy also released Housing Landscape 2012, the organization's annual look at housing affordability for working households.
