Housing Investments Preserved in Bill Back Better

Congress is on the brink of passing historic housing legislation that currently includes $150 billion for housing programs. But negotiations are ongoing, and the housing funding could be at risk. NAHRO needs you to speak out immediately to support this historic legislation and to ensure that the housing provisions are preserved. 

We cannot miss this once-in-a-generation opportunity to invest in housing infrastructure and address the affordable housing crisis. NAHRO must send a strong, unified message of support to Congress on the housing provisions in the Build Back Better Act. 

There are several ways to advocate NOW: 

The new framework was reduced from a total of $3.5 trillion to $1.75 trillion. Even though the topline was halved, public housing, vouchers, and community development are still in the bill. This is a direct result of your advocacy. Specifically, the framework currently contains $150 billion for housing, including: 

Public Housing Investments: $65 billion 

Housing Choice Vouchers: $24 billion

Project-Based Rental Assistance: $1 billion 

HOME Investment Partnerships Program: $10 billion 

Community Development Block Grant program: $3 billion 

National Housing Trust Fund: $15 billion 

Section 811: $450 million 

Section 202: $450 million  

We will not have this opportunity again. Speak up now to secure $150 billion for housing!
