On February 10, the campaign sent a letter to appropriators urging that a final FY22 spending bill includes the House proposal to expand Housing Choice Vouchers to an additional 125,000 households. A substantial expansion of rental assistance for people with the lowest incomes is a key element of any successful strategy to solve the affordable housing crisis. But due to chronic under-funding and disinvestment, only 1 in 4 households eligible for a federal housing voucher will get the help they need.

Signatories included 17 leading national organizations from an array of sectors, such as Church World Service, Healthcare Anchor Network, National Education Association, National League of Cities, and more.

The FY22 spending bill presents an opportunity to obtain a tremendous return on investment by expanding Housing Choice Vouchers to an additional 125,000 households.
