Representative Ritchie Torres to Join Today’s (June 21) National HoUSed Campaign Call for Universal, Stable, Affordable Housing!

Join today’s (June 21) national HoUSed campaign call from 2:30 to 4 pm ET. We will be joined by Representative Ritchie Torres (D-NY), who will discuss the importance of protecting targeted housing investments in any final reconciliation bill, and we will share how advocates can use NLIHC’s advocacy tools to take action and demand robust funding for vital investments in housing for people with the lowest incomes. We will also be joined by Whitney Airgood-Obrycki from the Joint Center for Housing Studies (JCHS) at Harvard University, who will share findings from a recent report on the short-term benefits of emergency rental assistance. The team behind NLIHC’s End Rental Arrears to Stop Evictions (ERASE) project will discuss a new report, database, and interactive map showing how states are using State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds allocated through the “American Rescue Plan Act” for affordable housing and to address the needs of people experiencing homelessness. NLIHC’s Courtney Cooperman will share insights from a new report from NLIHC’s Our Homes, Our Votes project on organizing a successful ballot measure campaign for affordable homes. We will also receive updates from the field, hear the latest news from Capitol Hill, and more.
