HUD Secretary Alphonso Jackson has submitted a new Housing Bill
that is meant to destroy the low-income Section 8 Housing Choice
Voucher Program for the poor.
If passed into legislation, millions of low-income renters
will be put at risk of homelessness and forced out of the
Section 8 housing assistance program!

---SAVE SECTION 8---
Federal law presently requires that 75% of the nation's
Section 8 vouchers go to those earning less than 30% of
the area median income. Meaning, the poorest of the poor.
The new HUD Bill "S.771," submitted by Secretary Jackson,
requires that 90% of the Section 8 vouchers shall go to
those earning up to 60% of area median income.
The Section 8 program serves nearly 2 million low-income families,
and placing 75% of those families at risk is exactly what HUD is
proposing to do!
HUD proposes to take the housing vouchers from the poorest
of the poor, and give the vouchers to wealthier tenants that
do not need assistance to avoid homelessness!
As they destroy the program with budget cuts, they want it to look like
the same number of tenants are being served by dumping the poor, and
trading them in for wealthier tenants that need less funding!
Eventually, the program will be totally defunded!
See the list of organizations that wrote in opposition to
S. 771, “The State and Local Housing Flexibility Act
"On behalf of the 9.7 million extremely low
income households with severe housing cost burdens
who need housing assistance and the five million
families able to afford safe and decent housing today
through HUD’s major housing subsidy programs, we write
in opposition to this legislation."
