Congresswoman Hayes has worked to combat homelessness and bolster safe, affordable housing options. In addition to supporting critical appropriations funding each fiscal year, Congresswoman Hayes has advocated for the expansion of protections for renters, landlords and homeowners though the pandemic. She also supports the Build Back Better Act, which represents the single largest investment in affordable housing in our nation’s history. This legislation would help 294,000 households afford rent, upgrade over 1.8 million affordable housing units, and expand programs for several first-time homebuyers.
