“If we are going to reach our goal of making homelessness rare, brief, and non-recurring, our homeless response systems need access to low barrier affordable and supportive housing,” said Eric Samuels, president of the Texas Homeless Network, an organization that coordinates statewide homelessness efforts. “We need low barrier affordable and supportive housing to end homelessness. So, for this reason, we opposed adding the tenant criminal background screening criteria.”

Those communities without any COVID-related rental assistance programs will most likely be eligible to begin receiving funds after the New Year begins.”

#NationalEMSWeek recognizes all emergency workers and the important work they do in our nation's communities. Without data and responses from the#2020Census, emergency response would not be effective and emergency workers would not have the proper resources to respond. Respond today at 2020census.gov to help your community better understand the needs for recovery from disasters and emergencies.
