It provides real evidence that the economic downturn is impacting the housing stability of low-income and vulnerable Americans – as we see a rise in family homelessness for the second consecutive year.

House T-HUD Subcommittee Marks Up FY 2011 Spending Bill

The House Transportation, Housing, and Urban Development (T-HUD) Appropriations Subcommittee marked up its FY 2011 spending bill on Thursday, July 1, 2010. It included approximately $2 billion In HUD McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Grants, $75 million to support 10,000 new HUD-VA Supportive Housing (VASH) vouchers and $85 million to fund 10,000 housing vouchers for the Housing and Services for Homeless Persons Demonstration. The Coalition is pleased with the markup for funding for these provisions, which we supported during our Hill Day visits with Congressional Representatives on June 30, 2010.
