Fill out the form below to add your organization to the HoUSed campaign's letter urging Congress to quickly enact the bold, long-term solutions included in the Build Back Better Act .
The time is now: Nationwide, there is a shortage of nearly 7 million affordable and available homes for the lowest income renters. As rents continue to rise and wages remain stagnant, there are now zero counties in the U.S. where a minimum wage earner working full-time can afford a two-bedroom apartment. There are numerous proven solutions that can address the affordability crisis, but current funding levels from Congress leave 3 out of 4 eligible households receiving no assistance at all.
Specifically, the economic recovery package includes:
- $25 billion to expand rental assistance,
- $65 billion to preserve public housing, and
- $15 billion for the National Housing Trust Fund
Join us in calling on Congress to quickly enact these new resources!
