HOUSE BILL PROVIDES $1 BILLION FOR NATIONAL HOUSING TRUST FUND
House leaders yesterday introduced the Jobs for Main Street Act as an amendment to H.R. 2847. The bill includes $1 billion for the National Housing Trust Fund to provide communities with funds to build, preserve and rehabilitate rental homes that are affordable for extremely and very low-income households. The bill also provides $65 million for project-based vouchers to support units built by the trust fund.
