The Ending Homelessness Act is targeted to increase funding for McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Grants, Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers (HCV), the national Housing Trust Fund, and state and local initiatives. The bill would permanently authorize the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act and the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness which are essential to ensure homeless people have access to emergency shelter and services.
There were several amendments adopted during the vote, including an amendment offered by Representative Bill Posey (R-FL) to provide incentives for communities to adopt inclusionary zoning policies. This amendment would be instrumental in providing much needed affordable housing across the State of Florida. Please read the information in the link below to learn more.
