Increase Affordable Housing in Silicon Valley - Catholic Charities

Shelter is a basic human need. Housing assistance is one of the greatest emergency needs in our county. Join with others in asking Congress to take three steps:

  • Increase HUD funding to provide 59,000 Section 8 vouchers for Santa Clara County. This is the number of families on the waiting list.

  • Pass the National Affordable Housing Trust Fund legislation for the construction of 1.5 million low-income housing units over 10 years.
  • Create legislation for the right to decent, affordable housing.

Send this message to your Congress person this month.

For more information contact Margherita Pagni, Social Policy Specialist, Catholic Charities, or (408) 325-5258.
