(Washington, D.C.) February 1, 2021 – Today, the Council of Large Public Housing Authorities, the Moving to Work Collaborative, the National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials, and the Public Housing Authorities Directors Association sent a joint letter to both Senate and House leadership calling on Congress to allocate $50 billion in emergency vouchers in the next COVID relief bill.
The letter states that Housing Choice Vouchers are the most effective solution to support low-income renter households during these unprecedented times, providing durable and efficient emergency assistance for the many workers whose jobs have disappeared.
