U.S. Dept of Treasury's Emergency Rental Assistance

If you're looking for help with housing costs, you're not alone

 

Renters and landlords can apply for money from the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Emergency Rental Assistance program. Get help with rent, utility bills and even moving costs.

The COVID-19 pandemic has made it difficult for renters and landlords to cover housing costs. The CDC eviction moratorium ended on July 31, so renters are worried about catching up on past-due rent and facing eviction.

 

The U.S. Department of the Treasury has an Emergency Rental Assistance program. The funds are being distributed by state and local organizations to their communities. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has a tool to find a program in your community.

STRONGER UNIONS MAKE FOR A STRONGER AMERICA

The Build Back Better agenda means trillions of dollars of investment in our jobs, families, and communities. See how this positively impacts Wisconsin’s working class here.

 

This agenda is made up of two critical pieces of legislation: the Infrastructure Investment & Jobs Act and the 2021 Budget Reconciliation Bill, otherwise known as the Build Back Better Act.

 

Congress recently passed the $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill, a transformative investment in roads, bridges, transit, rail, climate change mitigation, electric vehicles, clean drinking water, high-speed internet, resilient transmission lines, and more that will create good-paying union jobs.

 

Now, we need Congress to take bold action and pass the Build Back Better Act, a $1.75 trillion investment in child care, home care, clean energy jobs, health care, tax fairness, immigration improvements, and support for worker organizing.

 

Working people in America have waited long enough for this historic investment in working people.

 

Call 844-994-4554 as soon as you can to tell your Senators to pass the Build Back Better Act!
