WASHINGTON, DC-The Campaign for Housing and Community Development Funding–an education, strategy and action center focusing on federal housing and community development funding–has submitted questions to the presidential candidates regarding their stance on everything from affordable housing to homelessness, and the candidates have responded.

The Kerry-Edwards camp pointed to Kerry’s attempts to address the situation in the form of the National Affordable Housing Trust Fund Act, which he wrote, and his desire to preserve existing housing. Additionally, Kerry introduced the Community Development Homeownership Tax Credit Act in an effort to spur the development of housing for low- and moderate-income households.
