Take Action - Oppose HUD Rule Change That Could Make 25k Mixed Status Families Homeless

Housing and Urban Development is considering a rule change that could make roughly 25,000 Mixed status families homeless unless you take action. HUD is proposing a rule that would require verification of eligible immigration status for every leaseholder who is receiving public assistance for housing. This proposed rule change ignores the family who would suffer while also putting an undue burden on a population who is already struggling to cover expenses for the household.
