CARES Act:

“Allocates roughly $3.3 billion for federal subsidized housing programs to remain stable and safe for residents. These programs include: the Housing Choice Voucher program, project-based rental assistance, public housing, tribal housing, and other housing programs administered by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development. This funding will support services and deep cleaning for quarantined residents and offset reduced income for these programs from tenant rent payments.

  • Provides funds specifically targeted to addressing and preventing homelessness and helping households cover the cost of utilities, including:
    1. $4 billion for cities and states through the Emergency Solutions Grants program, to be used for temporary emergency shelters, staff costs, eviction prevention, and rapid rehousing of individuals experiencing homelessness, with at least $2 billion of these funds distributed to jurisdictions based on greatest COVID-19 related needs.
    2. $200 million for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Emergency Food and Shelter Program, which supports shelter, food, and services provided by local service organizations.
    3. $900 million for the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP), which helps families pay home energy bills.”
