|Check out this quick-click way to contact your Congresspeople and be heard on the urgency of federal homelessness funds. Thanks to the National Alliance to End Homelessness for this alert:|
On Monday, the Senate unveiled its latest coronavirus relief bill, and there’s bad news: not only does it fail to extend the eviction moratoria, but funding for homelessness and housing is nonexistent.
As negotiations begin with the House for a final bill, now is the time for you to speak up.
We need your voices and perspectives to convince elected officials that homelessness and housing programs need this relief funding.
To appropriately respond to COVID-19, Congress must include the following amounts for homelessness programs:
$11.5 billion in Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG)
$1 billion in Housing Choice Vouchers
$100 billion in rental assistance
Contacting your elected officials is essential in this current moment to ensure continued funding for housing and homelessness as a result of the pandemic.
