The Opportunity Starts at Home multi-sector affordable homes campaign recently released a new blog post, “Family Stability and Opportunity Vouchers Act: What It Is and Why It Matters.” The post explores the bipartisan “Family Stability and Opportunity Vouchers Act,” which would create an additional 500,000 housing vouchers specifically designed for low-income families with young children to expand their access to neighborhoods of opportunity with high-performing schools, strong job prospects, and other resources.
The bill was recently reintroduced by Senators Chris Van Hollen (D-MD) and Todd Young (R-IN). The post provides an overview of the bill and explores specific aspects of the legislation, including its enabling families to live in neighborhoods of choice and targeting resources to families with the greatest needs, as well as evidence of the efficiency of the bill’s provisions.
