NLIHC President and CEO Diane Yentelstated, “Given the affordable housing crisis in communities across the nation, it is critical that Congress reinvest scarce federal resources into providing affordable rental homes for people with the greatest needs. I applaud these Members of Congress for taking this important step toward ending homelessness and housing poverty once and for all, and I encourage them to cosponsor the Common Sense Housing Investment Act of 2017, which would do just that.”
Mr. Ellison reintroduced the “Common Sense Housing Investment Act” on February 8. NLIHC and the United for Homes campaign—which is supported by more than 2,300 national, state, and local organizations and government officials—strongly endorse the legislation. Stay tuned for more information on Mr. Ellison’s legislation, and action you can take to support it, coming soon.
