Access to Affordable Housing

Catherine grew up in Nevada and wants to make sure every Nevada family can afford a safe place to live and call home. That’s why she has been a leader pushing to expand affordable housing, help families, seniors, and veterans access affordable housing, and combat housing discrimination. 

After the financial crisis, Catherine worked to hold the Big Banks accountable and delivered $1.9 billion in relief to Nevada homeowners. She has made homeownership easier for thousands of Nevada families by working directly with the Treasury Department to secure down payment assistance for Nevadans in communities hit hardest by foreclosures. 

And when Nevadans were struggling to make rent and pay for their mortgages during the pandemic, it was Catherine who stood up for them and delivered emergency housing relief so they could stay in their homes. She helped pass the American Rescue Plan and made sure to include emergency rental and mortgage assistance for Nevadans, helping protect our rural and tribal communities as well.

Catherine knows Nevadans deserve access to safe, affordable housing, so she’s leading the fight to stop housing discrimination that often targets women, people of color, and rural Nevadans. This includes shady lending practices that could leave Nevadans without a roof over their head.
