Shaheen Holds Conference Call With Granite State Housing Advocates & Officials
Today, U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) hosted a conference call with New Hampshire housing advocates and state officials to discuss their ongoing needs amid the COVID-19 crisis. The event came as New Hampshire lifts its eviction moratorium, which has led to mounting concerns over a potential surge in evictions and homelessness, and the impending expiration of extended unemployment benefits passed as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. During the call, Shaheen heard from the participants on the experiences and challenges they have faced working to provide shelter to vulnerable Granite State families and shared a legislative update from the Senate on her priorities in future COVID-19 response legislation.
