Hundreds of advocates will participate in a “Save HUD 202 Rally” on June 27. The Section 202 program helps expand the supply of affordable housing with supportive services for the elderly. The rally will take place at the Upper Senate Park on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC. Invited speakers include members of Congress, senior residents, and providers of services for older adults. The rally is being organized by LeadingAge.
The goal of the rally is to send a strong message to lawmakers that homes provided by HUD’s Section 202 program must be preserved, fully funded, and expanded to meet the affordable housing needs of older adults.
