Federal Policy Brief  |  October 16, 2006
Thanks to an amendment introduced by Senator Landrieu (D-LA) and supported by Senator Vitter (R-LA), the Senate version of the supplemental appropriations bill includes funding for supportive housing (housing linked with services for extremely low-income people) in the Gulf Coast. The bill would make 4,500 project based rent subsidies available for use in supportive housing. These rent subsidies can be linked to the GO-Zone tax credits and service supports to create supportive housing for disabled and vulnerable residents of the Gulf Coast. This proposal conforms to Louisiana’s The Road Home housing plan, and the needs of communities throughout the region.

The disaster in New Orleans and the Gulf Coast has created hundreds of thousands of homeless people. Some of them—the ones with more resources and stronger support networks—will quickly find their own way back into housing, although not without displacement, substantial financial consequence, and tremendous personal anguish. Others, however, will need more help getting back into housing and on their feet. Two decades of research have concluded that lack of stable, permanent housing results in serious consequences. In the absence of stable housing stress goes up, child performance in school goes down, treatment regimens fail and employment becomes difficult to gain or maintain. We must rapidly get those made homeless by the hurricane back into permanent housing.

The Senate approved its $28.9 billion hurricane recovery package on May 4, 2006, improving in many ways upon the companion measure that passed the full House, H.R. 4939, on March 16. Several aspects of the Senate bill are critical to ensure the needs of elderly, disabled and other extremely low income renters in the Gulf coast are met, and we request that these changes remain in any compromise that emerges from conference committee negotiations.
