HAC would like to thank the more than 100 organizations who signed on in support of rural housing’s inclusion in the next COVID-19 relief package! We value and appreciate your partnership. To view the final letter, click here.
Rural communities have been deeply impacted by coronavirus outbreaks and related economic challenges. Having access to a safe, healthy and affordable home is foundational to weathering the storm of this pandemic, and added funding for USDA’s Rural Housing Service programs will be important to ensuring that rural residents aren’t left behind. Congress is currently working to negotiate the next COVID-19 relief package, and we are hopeful that Congressional leaders will prioritize the need for rural housing funding in that effort.
