FHFA to Join Monday’s (May 22) National HoUSed Campaign Call for Universal, Stable, Affordable Housing

Join Monday’s (May 22) national HoUSed campaign call from 2:30 to 4:00 pm ET. We will be joined by Siobhan Kelly, associate director of the Office of Multifamily Analytics and Policy at the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA), to share an upcoming opportunity to weigh-in with FHFA on tenant protections needed at FHFA-financed properties. Peggy Bailey from the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities (CBPP) and Steve Berg from the National Alliance to End Homelessness (NAEH) will join for a conversation about the urgent threats to affordable housing and homelessness assistance funding posed by the ongoing fight over the nation’s debt ceiling. Amanda Jack from the Legal Aid Society of New York will share a recent letter from New York City’s public defenders responding to Mayor Eric Adams’ comment calling for increased criminalization and forced hospitalization of people experiencing homelessness. We will receive field updates, share the latest updates from Capitol Hill on the ongoing fight to raise the federal debt ceiling, and discuss ways advocates can take action regarding the importance of increased federal investments in affordable housing and homelessness assistance.
