The U.S. Division of Housing and City Growth is giving homeless folks $ 5 billion within the pandemic. We will help you entry your voice
Roommate, you’d better say “good morning” because US Department of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Marcia Fudge is in the building!
She entered The Shade Room to discuss the American Rescue Plan (ARP) which goes beyond the $ 1,400. One in five Americans is at risk of losing their home while we speak, but Aunt Fudge says help is finally here. The ARP includes $ 40 billion in housing and rental assistance – $ 5 billion of which is vouchers specially designed for the homeless to buy hotel rooms and other accommodations immediately.
“We believe we can help over 130,000 people find safe homes over the next 12 months,” said Fudge.
Since homeless people typically don’t have bank accounts or access to the internet, they need a little help contacting the appropriate offices.
A local HUD office or the IRS is a good place to start. Without bank accounts, the homeless receive physical checks in the mail. For example, a PO box or a local church is needed to collect the incentive.
Fudge insisted that homeless citizens “should go to a social welfare agency – just let us know where you are and we’ll make sure you get the check.”
