Chair Maxine Waters to Join Today’s National HoUSed Campaign Call for Universal, Stable, Affordable Housing!

Join today’s (June 6) national call for the “HoUSed: Universal, Stable, and Affordable Housing” campaign from 2:30 to 4 pm ET to hear from U.S. House Financial Services Committee Chair Maxine Waters (D-CA), who will discuss the state of play in Congress for achieving significant new investments in affordable housing. We will discuss the urgent need to include robust, federal housing investments targeted to the lowest-income households in any final reconciliation package and share details on how you can participate in NLIHC’s National Day of Advocacy on June 7 to urge Congress to make these vital investments.

Sandra Park from the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and Maria Roumiantseva from the National Coalition for a Civil Right to Counsel (NCCRC) will share findings from a new joint report on the impact of right-to-counsel legislation on evictions and how right to counsel can help prevent the discriminatory impacts of evictions on communities. We will hear from NLIHC’s End Rental Arrears to Stop Evictions (ERASE) project about its new report on trends in emergency rental assistance (ERA) spending, reallocation, and disparities between grantees’ remaining ERA funds and ongoing need. A member of the ERASE project cohort will join the call to share a new eviction tracking tool, and we will receive updates from the field, hear the latest updates from Capitol Hill, and more.
