Housing Organizations Analyze Initial Draft of Economic Recovery Package

On Wednesday, January 14, approximately forty housing organizations sent Congressional Leadership a sign on letter urging the inclusion of additional funding for affordable housing and community development programs in the upcoming economic recovery package.

This table compares and contrasts the top ten housing-related requests agreed to by the organizations - and included in the letter - to the funding allocated in a recent draft of this bill circulating among policymakers.

It is important to note that this draft is a primitive version of the bill and tentative to change.
