Monthly Action Sheets (U.S. Poverty)

August 2020: Congress must include housing assistance in COVID bill

Millions of Americans are facing eviction and homelessness in the middle of a pandemic. As Congress works to pass another COVID-19 response package, it is imperative that it includes emergency rental assistance and a national moratorium on evictions. Contact your Senate and House offices now and tell them to make sure the next COVID-19 bill protects renters. Generate local media to amplify your message. (Word version)

A tax credit to help more families keep a roof over their heads

Paychecks aren’t keeping up with rents. That forces millions of people in the U.S. to choose between a place to live and their other basic needs. And for some, it means not having a place to live at all. A renters’ tax credit could help change this.
