Act Now to Support Affordable Housing!

October 5, 2007

On October 10, the House of Representatives will consider important legislation to authorize a new Housing Trust Fund to develop rental housing targeted to individuals with extremely low incomes, including people with serious mental illness living on Supplemental Security Income (SSI).  NAMI strongly supports this legislation (HR 2895) as a critical step to development of new affordable housing targeted to individuals living on SSI.  NAMI is extremely grateful to House Financial Services Committee Chairman Barney Frank (D-MA) for bringing this important legislation forward.
