“HEROES Act” Includes Campaign’s Priorities; Help Us Keep the Momentum Going! 

Yesterday, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) unveiled the Democratic proposal for the next coronavirus relief package, called the “HEROES Act.”  Thanks to your advocacy, the “HEROES Act” includes the campaign’s three most urgent priorities to ensure housing stability during and after the pandemic: 1) $100B for emergency rental assistance; 2) a uniform evictions moratorium; and 3) $11.5B for homeless assistance.
This is an important step forward, but we have a lot of work ahead in both the House and Senate to ensure that these housing resources are included in any final negotiated package.

Ways to Take Action TODAY:

  1. Tweet thanks to Speaker Pelosi, Chair Maxine Waters, Chair David Price, Representative Denny Heck and all original cosponsors of the “Emergency Rental Assistance Act” for prioritizing #RentReliefNow and homeless assistance funding.
  2. Send this pre-formatted letter to your members of Congress telling them that the next coronavirus relief package must include these items from the “HEROES Act”:
    • $100 billion for emergency rental assistance
    • $11.5 billion to protect people experiencing homelessness
    • A national, uniform moratorium on evictions
  3. Ask your senators and representative to cosponsor the “Emergency Rental Assistance Act.” Find out if your members of Congress are already original cosponsors of the bill.  There are already 136 cosponsors in the House and 29 in the Senate.  Here is a Fact Sheet about the bill.
