Key Markers|

  • Original co-sponsor of the Housing Survivors of Major Disasters Act of 2019

    • Reintroduced the "Housing Survivors of Major Disasters Act of 2019" (S 1605 and HR 2914) on May 22, 2019. This bill would require FEMA to enter into an interagency agreement with HUD to implement the Disaster Housing Assistance Program (DHAP), providing temporary rental assistance and wrap-around counseling services for individuals affected by recent and future disasters. The proposal also aims to address barriers low-income survivors face when applying for FEMA assistance.

  • Introduced the American Housing and Economic Mobility Act of 2018

    • Would invest $445 billion over ten years in affordable homes, including $45 billion per year in the national Housing Trust Fund to build, rehab and operate housing for the lowest-income people in America. The bill would also provide incentives for jurisdictions to implement zoning and regulatory reforms to promote more private sector development of housing for low- and moderate-income households.
