What Began as a California housing crisis has turned into an affordable housing epidemic that is sweeping the Nation.
Millions of low income Americans are paying 70 % of their income towards shelter!
The trump administration has enacted a plan to triple the rent for the poorest tenants receiving federal housing and loosening the cap on 4.5 million households enrolled in public housing programs nationwide with the goal of replacing long time tenants with new ones.
The government is leaving it up to state and local governments to tackle this growing threat that can very easily leave the majority of low income citizens homeless and hungry.
In 2018 the white house proposed a bill to slash 8.8 billion dollars from the Department of housing and urban development effectively crippling the nations progress at tackling this crisis.
We as a people need to unite together and help each other fight back against this blatant attack on American citizens right to affordable housing. Together we can enact legislation that will solidify housing as a right in this country.
