In a move that is expected to deny housing to up to a million Americans of low income and raise rent for another million, Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson is proposing expansive changes to federal housing subsidies. The plan triples rent for the poorest households and allows housing authorities to impose work requirements. Tell our Members of Congress to stand behind the millions of Americans that rely on affordable housing!
