NLIHC released today a new report and set of resources showing how states and localities are leveraging Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds (SLFRF) to invest in affordable housing and homelessness prevention and services. The new report, State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds: Initial Trends in Housing Investments,
documents how jurisdictions are using the $350 billion SLFRF program to keep families housed during the pandemic, tackle the growing homelessness crisis, and develop affordable housing to address the root causes of housing instability and homelessness. A new webpage
makes available to the public data from NLIHC’s SLFRF database and includes an interactive map
identifying state and local housing investments with SLFRF, along with other resources for housing advocates and policymakers.
