Senate Passes $1.9 Trillion Coronavirus Relief Bill

The Senate passed by a vote of 50 to 49 the American Rescue Plan Act, a $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package containing nearly $50 billion in essential housing and homelessness assistance, including $27.4 billion for rental assistance and $5 billion to assist people who are homeless. These investments will help prevent millions of low-income people from losing their homes during the pandemic and will provide cities and states with the resources they need to help people experiencing homelessness find and remain safely housed throughout the duration of the pandemic and beyond.
