The Opportunity Starts at Home multi-sector affordable homes campaign sent a letter on August 31 to congressional leaders urging them to: 1) expand rental assistance by $180 billion; 2) invest $70 billion to repair the nation’s public housing infrastructure; and 3) invest $45 billion in the national Housing Trust Fund in any final infrastructure and recovery package. The letter was signed by 43 leading organizations from an array of sectors, including health, education, food security, civil rights, faith, homelessness, seniors, child well-being, environmental protection, municipal governance, gender equity, animal protection, and more. These signatories demonstrate a growing willingness across sectors to engage in housing policy advocacy and to support bold affordable housing investments.
