We will provide updates on the reconciliation bill, the FY2023 funding bill, and the “Eviction Crisis Act” and discuss how you can engage your members of Congress on all three. Lily Milwit from the National Homelessness Law Center will join the call to share insights about state and local legislation being passed to criminalize people experiencing homelessness and explain how advocates can fight against these measures.

We will also hear from NLIHC’s End Rental Arrears to Stop Evictions (ERASE) project team about new emergency rental assistance spending and demographic data from the U.S. Department of the Treasury, receive updates from the field, and more.
