On April 22, the campaign sent a letter to appropriators urging to include in their FY23 spending bills President Biden’s budget request to expand Housing Choice Vouchers to an additional 200,000 households. Rental assistance is a critical tool for helping people with the lowest incomes afford decent, stable homes, and avoid homelessness. 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 the American Academy of Pediatrics, Church World Service, Civil Rights Corps, National Coalition for Homeless Veterans, and more.
The FY23 spending bill presents an opportunity to obtain a tremendous return on investment by expanding Housing Choice Vouchers to an additional 200,000 households.
