Low-income people served by affordable housing programs are already being negatively impacted by the shutdown. People from across the country have shared their stories of being threatened with increased rents or evictions, and other individuals have found that landlords will not rent to voucher holders out of concern that HUD will not pay them what is needed to cover their costs.

The longer the shutdown continues, the greater its harm will be, and the lowest-income people — seniors, people with disabilities, and families with children — will suffer the most. You can also see an interactive map and a state-by-state breakdown of how the shutdown is impacting some HUD-assisted housing.
