Dear Friends of Morris Habitat,
We need your voice now, more than ever. Families need a safe, decent, affordable, and healthy place to live now, more than ever. Your help is needed to bridge the gap of affordability and of health and safety for our communities.
The Covid-19 pandemic has led to a near-collapse in our economy. Especially hard hit are the leisure, hospitality, and restaurant industries whose low-wage workers are disproportionately people of color and women. Unemployment has skyrocketed, leaving these employees unsure how they will pay their bills, especially their housing bills. With the expiration of benefits from the CARES Act, we are on the verge of massive evictions and foreclosures; in New Jersey alone approximately 450,000 households are unable to pay their August rent.
This is where your voice is needed. Through advocacy we will expand the reach of our mission, influencing policies that promote affordable housing. Please consider contacting federal policymakers today, as they negotiate Covid-19 relief and to oppose the rollback of the 2015 Further Fair Housing Rule. Please click here to read more.
