Congressman Mike Quigley

Representing the 5th District of Illinois

Housing

We have a responsibility to work together to bring the American dream within reach for as many as possible and that begins with ensuring that every American has access to safe, affordable housing.
 
As a member of the House Appropriations Committee, I’m fighting to bring valuable federal housing and urban development funding back to the Chicago region. I’ve been proud to secure funding for the Fair Housing Initiative Program, which is leading the fight against housing discrimination. I’ve worked to combat homelessness by pushing for increased funding for VA homeless assistance programs like the HUD-VA Supportive Housing Program and the Supportive Services for Low Income Veterans and Families Program. And, I’ve been a champion for increased funding for the Housing Opportunities for People with AIDS (HOPWA) program, which provides housing assistance and supportive services to people living with HIV/AIDS. Moreover, I’ve lead the fight to modernize the outdated HOPWA formula so Chicago will have access to increased funding.
 
Housing is a basic, human need, which is why we must do all we can to provide equal access and reduce homelessness across the country. I will continue to support robust funding for a broad range of programs designed to promote affordable housing, homeownership, and community development.
