NLIHC and National Women’s Law Center Publish Factsheet on “Improving Housing Assistance in Response to COVID-19”

NLIHC partnered with the National Women’s Law Center (NWLC) to create a new factsheet, “Improving Housing Assistance in Response to COVID-19,” which describes the specific housing needs of women, families, and transgender women during the COVID-19 pandemic. Because women, particularly women of color, are overrepresented in the low-paid workforce, many women and families already struggled to afford their rents. As the pandemic causes increased economic instability, low-wage women, survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault, LBGTQ people, people with disabilities, and immigrant women and families will need additional assistance and protections to stay stably housed.
