Now is the time to take action. Contact your senators and representatives and urge them to ensure that any reduction to the “Build Back Better Act” does not come at the expense of proven housing solutions.
“Build Back Better Act,” is a $3.5 trillion comprehensive infrastructure and economic recovery package now on its way for a vote in Congress.
Any reduction to the “Build Back Better Act” could result in harmful cuts to the $327 billion proposed for affordable housing currently in the bill that includes $90 billion for rental assistance, $80 billion to preserve public housing, and $37 billion in the national Housing Trust Fund to build and preserve homes affordable to people with the lowest incomes.
Contact your senators and representatives today and urge them to ensure that any reduction to the “Build Back Better Act” does not come at the expense of those with the greatest needs and to prioritize the highest level of funding possible for rental assistance, public housing, and the Housing Trust Fund.
