Following a meeting with the National Association of Home Builders senior officers, including NAHB CEO Jerry Howard, the U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gina M. Raimondo released the following statement:

“The residential construction industry is facing serious challenges because of supply chain constraints and the impact on home building, especially with respect to affordable housing. Today was a productive, positive conversation to begin to address these challenges. We take these issues seriously, and my staff and I are committed to continuing to work with all stakeholders, including reviewing relevant data and conducting analysis to identify targeted actions the government or industry can take to address supply chain constraints. I want to thank the NAHB and its leaders for constructive engagement on this issue and working with us to find a path forward.”
