WASHINGTON – RealEstateRama – Congressman Lee Zeldin (R, NY-1), member of the House Financial Services Committee, introduced the Interagency Council on Homelessness Coronavirus Guidance Act (H.R. 6293), which requires the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness (USICH) to issue guidance to the public and stakeholders on best practices to prevent and respond to COVID-19 outbreaks for all classifications of homeless populations.
“The continued outbreak of coronavirus has inflicted great harm to many of our most vulnerable Americans, including our homeless population,” said Congressman Zeldin. “Whether these Americans are veterans struggling to transition back into civilian life, victims of the heroin and opioid abuse epidemic, or others who fell onto hard times, we must do everything we can to work together to prevent and combat the spread of coronavirus in our communities. If these agencies fail to issue the needed guidance before Congress considers its next coronavirus response legislation, this important legislation must be included.”
