Join NLIHC on June 7 for a national call-in day and Twitterstorm at 1 pm ET to urge Congress to include robust funding for affordable housing investments targeted to people with the lowest incomes in any reconciliation package! After months of delays, the White House, congressional leaders, and key senators have restarted negotiations over a scaled-down reconciliation package that could include once-in-a-generation housing investments targeted to ensure people with the lowest incomes have a safe, quality, affordable, and accessible place to call home. We cannot let this opportunity to advance the bold, long-term solutions needed to address the nation’s affordable housing crisis pass us by!
- $25 billion to expand rental assistance to more than 300,000 households with low incomes. See how many vouchers your state would receive here.
- $65 billion to make critically needed repairs to public housing, and ensure current and future residents have safe, quality homes.
- $15 billion for the national Housing Trust Fund to build, preserve, and operate an estimated 150,000 units of affordable, accessible housing for households with the lowest incomes. See NLIHC’s breakdown of how much funding each state would receive through the Housing Trust Fund here.
Thank you for your advocacy!
