Build Back Better Framework Preserves Housing Investments – Take Action Today! 

Excerpt from NAHRO

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

NAHRO advocates helped ensure that public housing, vouchers, and community development are still in the bill by taking action using the Advocacy website. Currently, the BBB framework contains $150 billion for housing, including:

  • $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
