Statement of NHC President and CEO David M. Dworkin on the passing of President Biden’s COVID-19 relief plan

On behalf of the National Housing Conference (NHC), I would like to commend President Biden for his signing of the $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief plan to provide much-needed assistance to millions of renters and homeowners who continue to face hardship due to the ongoing pandemic, as well as struggling mom-and-pop landlords who are working to stay afloat after going nearly a year without rental payments.

Statement of NHC President and CEO David M. Dworkin on President-elect Biden’s relief plan

On behalf of the National Housing Conference (NHC), I would like to commend President-elect Joseph Biden for moving quickly to put forth a comprehensive plan to introduce additional emergency rental assistance. As industry leaders have expressed, the first $25 billion was a significant down payment towards the rental crisis, but research has proven an additional $25 billion is certainly needed. President-elect Biden’s plan, coupled with the U.S. Department of Treasury’s efforts to expeditiously provide funds to states and localities, represents monumental steps in the right direction.
