HousingLOUISIANA’s response to the Governor’s announcement today regarding rental assistance

“We urge the public and the media to look at the data that we presented last month and carefully examine the Governor’s plan, as we will be doing, before coming to a conclusion about it.  The data we presented in June lays out a minimum of $250 Million needed for rental assistance through the end of 2020. If you compare the money spent on other programs in the battle against COVID-19, that number dwarfs what leaders have dedicated to meeting the most basic need in this crisis – ensuring everyone has a home to shelter in. And that is simply not good enough.”  -Andreanecia Morris, President, HousingLOUISIANA
