Local & Statewide Government Affairs
Why is Government Affairs Important?
Did you know the apartment industry in Mississippi helps contribute $2.5 billion to our economy? Personal contact between the Mississippi Apartment Association members and legislators is the key to achieving positive change for the apartment industry. The Government Affairs Committee helps oversee the coordination of issues through grassroots efforts and helps bring awareness to local leaders about the importance of apartments in Mississippi. MAA works closely with the National Apartment Association to monitor issues on a federal level, such as fair housing and tax reform. The federal, state, and local policy issues impacting the apartment industry are numerous and wide-ranging, and affect how property owners and managers provide safe affordable housing. Issues can arise at any time.
