house Bill H.R. 2790

Should Nonprofits Be Allowed To Offer Housing Assistance Through Federal Funding?

Argument in favor

Currently, nonprofits are excluded from offering rental assistance through the Department of Housing and Urban Development's (HUD) program, Continuum of Care (CoC). This bill would include nonprofits and increase the number of agencies trying to quickly re-house people experiencing homelessness.

Argument opposed

Government agencies are better equipped than nonprofits with resources and funding to handle rental assistance applications and re-housing — especially if they don't have to share funding with nonprofits. HUD probably didn't exclude nonprofits from the Continuum of Care program on accident.
