The Alliance will continue to support the revised HEROES Act because it includes several provisions that would help communities deal with the health and economic consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic for people experiencing homelessness as well as those at risk of homelessness. The Senate Republican “Skinny Bill” includes no new funding for homelessness and low-income housing. The Administration’s proposal, to the extent it is known, includes some funding for rental assistance but none for homelessness.
