Thread: As @annymoliva explains, the Supreme Court’s decision ending the #EvictionMoratorium is devastating for millions of families. Here’s more about the federal investment needed to make sure we don’t repeat the same mistakes next time.
The impending #eviction crisis was avoidable. Rigorous research shows that #housing vouchers are highly effective at reducing #homelessness, housing instability, and overcrowding and at improving other outcomes for families and children.…
Yet 3-in-4 households who qualify for rental assistance don't receive any because of limited funding. And the lucky families that do get a #housing voucher had to wait over two years on average.…
If vouchers were more widely available, the story of the past 1.5 years would’ve been very different. More people could have gotten help when they first needed it, instead of facing risk of eviction while policymakers scrambled to enact & implement emergency assistance programs.
Lawmakers are in the midst of crafting recovery legislation that could represent the most sweeping effort to strengthen economic security in over half a century, including investments in #housing.…
While the President’s proposals called for robust investments to increase the housing stock, that must be paired with vouchers. Anything less will leave out many who need help the most, including many facing eviction in the coming weeks and months.…

Thread: Today is the 22nd anniversary of the Supreme Court’s landmark #Olmstead decision, which held that states must serve people with disabilities in the community rather than institutions when community-based services can meet their needs.
Lawmakers have a historic opportunity to fulfill the promise of #Olmstead to ensure that people with disabilities can live in the community with the supports they need to stay out of institutions.
While progress has been made over the last two decades, many people with disabilities are still forced to live in institutional settings due to inadequate home- and community-based services (#HCBS) and affordable #housing.
