Advance the priorities of the National Low Income Housing Coalition's 'HoUSed' campaign, including: bridging the gap between incomes and housing costs by expanding rental assistance to every eligible household; expanding and preserving the supply of rental homes affordable and accessible to people with the lowest incomes; creating a national housing stabilization fund; and strengthening and enforcing renter protections.
COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT RESOURCES
Ensure robust federal funding for community development programs (homeless assistance housing counseling, housing choice vouchers, rural development, etc.).
Create a refundable tax credit for cost-burdened renters who pay more than 30 percent of their annual gross income on rent and utilities.
CONSUMER PROTECTION/ASSET DEVELOPMENT
Eliminate child and family poverty through fully funding federal tax credits, including the Child Tax Credit.
