Multisector Advocates Send Hundreds of Letters Urging Congress to Include Housing Resources in Next COVID-19 Relief Package

Through the Opportunity Starts at Home multisector affordable homes campaign, advocates have now sent more than 1,600 letters to members of Congress urging them to include robust housing resources in the next coronavirus relief package. Thanks to your advocacy, the campaign’s top policy priorities are included in Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s recently introduced “HEROES Act”: $100 billion for emergency rental assistance; a uniform evictions moratorium; $11.5 billion for homeless assistance; and at least $4 billion for Housing Choice Vouchers. These policy priorities have been endorsed by leading national organizations from education, health, civil rights, environmental protection, and other sectors.  

Help us keep the momentum going to ensure these housing resources are included in any final negotiated package. Please send this letter to your senators and representative and share with your networks. To send a letter, simply type in your street address, click submit, and the letter automatically goes directly to your elected officials.
