Today, hundreds of thousands of Arizonans are out of a job or working fewer hours because of the COVID-19 pandemic, leaving many under immense financial strain. In the face of so much uncertainty, no one should have to worry about losing their home or not being able to feed their family. It’s our responsibility in Congress to fight to make sure workers and families have the support they need.
Although Congress has provided $4.3 billion for Arizona workers and families so far, we have more work to do. Just before the new year, more of our work came to fruition when President Trump approved $900 billion in new COVID-19 relief, which includes about $25 billion for emergency rental assistance.
Many are hurting and need help now, and we want to make sure that as we deliver more aid, it is easy to find and given equitably. Fortunately, there are still resources available in your community to help renters.
