  • Ensuring timely and full funding for HUD's rental assistance programs, including Project Based Section 8 housing assistance payment contracts and service coordinators.
  • Preserving and developing new affordable housing units, while ensuring tenants can access economic opportunity.
  • Reducing regulatory burden in affordable housing policies.
