Democratic Party presumptive nominee Joe Biden’s stance on homeownership
In today’s Daily Download episode, HW+ Managing Editor Brena Nath discusses former Vice President and current Democratic Party presumptive nominee Joe Biden’s plans to support black businesses and homeownership.
On Tuesday, Biden urged voters to support his plans to boost the economic prospects of black Americans, including an increase in homeownership.
Biden reiterated the proposal he made during the heat of the primary campaign to create a new public credit reporting agency within the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau that would replace for-profit credit reporting companies like Experian.
Biden also proposed establishing national standards for housing appraisals aimed at ending “the undervaluing of homes in African American neighborhoods,” without providing specifics.
Additionally, he urged Congress to reserve half of all new relief funds for small businesses with 50 or fewer employees, a category he said includes 98% of all minority- and women-owned businesses.
