Action Alert: Affordable Housing Provisions Must Be Included in Next COVID-19 Relief Package

The $1.2 billion in financial support provided by the Emergency Housing Assistance for Older Adults Act (S. 4177, H.R. 6873) must be included in Congress’ next COVID-19 relief package. Ask your members of Congress to help the more than 700,000 older adults in HUD-assisted housing. S. 4177 and H.R. 6873 would provide key relief for affordable senior housing communities navigating the impacts of the coronavirus crisis, including: 

  • 845 million for COVID-19 costs related to services, staffing, disinfecting, PPE, and other costs.
  • $300 million to support existing and new Service Coordinators and to help them prevent, prepare for, and respond to COVID-19.
  • $50 million for wireless internet installation and service fees in resident units.
  • $7 million for a 1-year extension of HUD’s Integrated Wellness in Supportive Housing demonstration. 

Act NOW by calling and emailing your members of Congress.
