Biden Administration Plans To Reduce Homelessness

Homelessness is one of the problems that the Biden administration faced during the pandemic and in this time of soaring inflation rate. The number of American families who became homeless has increased in the past years due to the increasing price of house rentals. Millions also have been ejected from their homes.

The Biden administration announced this week its outline and plan to reduce homelessness. They also emphasized the different initiatives that started during the pandemic through the American Rescue Plan that became the highlight of the present administration.

American Rescue Plan

The American Rescue Plan has been a big help to millions of Americans across the country. This big stimulus package was passed in 2021 or shortly after Biden became the President. The administration provided billions of dollars to save millions of families from house ejection, according to an article published in Yahoo News.

The full plan of the administration was highlighted and released by the United States Interagency Council on Homelessness. According to the same source of the report, the federal government wants to mobilize additional funding to create more permanent affordable housing on a state level.

Biden Released A Statement

Pres. Joe Biden said, “My plan offers a roadmap for not only getting people into housing but also ensuring that they have access to the support, services, and income that allow them to thrive. It is a plan that is grounded in the best evidence and aims to improve equity and strengthen collaboration at all levels.”

Furthermore, homeless advocacy groups are optimistic about the plan of the Biden administration. They also praised the ambitious plan of reducing homelessness by 25 percent and including healthcare and foster care systems.
