MCH’s Executive Director, Senta Leff, is in Washington D.C. this week on behalf of Protect Our Homes. She is meeting with lawmakers and sharing the importance of housing stability.
A note from Senta:
I brought the Protect Our Homes message to 14 legislators yesterday! Leaders have already begun debates on an affordable housing funding bill. The House seeks to cut $487 million, resulting in a loss of more than 140,000 housing vouchers for families. The Senate has rejected the House’s proposal and aims to fund housing programs at current levels. But despite the Senate’s position, 60,000 vouchers are at risk of being lost if housing resources at HUD don’t see added investments.
