Join NLIHC’s next Tenant Talk Live! – a webinar with and for residents and resident leaders - today (July 6) at 6 pm ET (5 pm CT, 4 pm MT, and 3 pm PT) to discuss NLIHC’s July 21 Virtual Lobby Day to ensure Congress passes key housing resources and provisions in the next COVID-19 relief package.
NLIHC and our allies have been working hard to get Congress to adopt our key priorities, all of which are in the House-passed “HEROES Act,” in the next COVID-19 legislative package. These include $100 billion in emergency rental assistance; a uniform, national eviction moratorium, and $11.5 billion in Emergency Solutions Grants for homeless service providers. It is critical for low-income resident leaders to call on their members of Congress to act!
As a result of our efforts, nearly 200 members of Congress have signed on as cosponsors of the “Emergency Rental Assistance and Rental Market Stabilization Act,” introduced by Representatives Maxine Waters (D-CA) and Denny Heck (D-WA) and Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH). Last week, the full House approved the “Emergency Housing Protections and Relief Act of 2020,” which included NLIHC’s housing priorities from the HEROES Act.
To ensure these provisions are included in the next COVID-19 response package, NLIHC is planning a Virtual Lobby Day on July 21, and we need your participation! During today’s Tenant Talk Live webinar, you will learn how to participate! NLIHC Housing Advocacy Organizer Kyle Arbuckle will share how to engage your members of Congress and tools to help make those engagements powerful.
