Excerpt from NAHRO
On October 28, the White House released a new Build Back Better framework that includes $150 billion for housing.

- $65 billion in public housing investments;
- $24 billion for Housing Choice Vouchers;
- $1 billion for Project-Based Rental Assistance;
- $10 billion for the HOME Investment Partnerships Program;
- $3 billion for the Community Development Block Grant Program; and
- $15 billion for the National Housing Trust Fund
