NLIHC and the NLIHC-led Disaster Housing Recovery Coalition host weekly national calls on “Coronavirus, Homelessness, and Housing” every Monday at 2:30 pm ET. These calls feature leaders from Congress, the administration, state and national partners, local homelessness service and housing providers, and NLIHC sharing the latest information on how federal, state, and local governments are responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, its impact on people experiencing homelessness and low-income households, and how you can help advocate for needed resources.
Today’s (April 20) call at 2:30 to 4:00 p.m. ET will feature House Financial Services Committee Chair Maxine Waters (D-CA); Matt Desmond, author of the Pulitzer Prize winning book Evicted; HUD Assistant Secretary for Public and Indian Housing Hunter Kurtz; and HUD Acting Assistant Secretary for Community Planning and Development John Gibbs, plus field updates from New Jersey, Alaska, Louisiana, and more.

The NLIHC-led Disaster Housing Recovery Coalition (DHRC) continues to advocate for a broad array of resources and protections, including emergency rental assistance and eviction prevention assistance, a national moratorium on evictions and foreclosures, and emergency funds for homelessness service providers, housing authorities, and housing providers, among other recommendations. For more information, see DHRC’s full list of recommendations, which will continue to be expanded and refined.
