Housing & Homelessness

I am dedicated to ensuring that everyone in my district has access to affordable housing.  At a time when the stock of affordable housing is in decline, families spend an increasing amount of their income just to keep a roof over their heads.  It is essential that Congress take actions to support, preserve, and build affordable housing.  As a strong advocate for public housing residents, I support efforts that combine housing market-driven solutions, federal support and state and local initiatives.

I support legislation to protect seniors from foreclosures, make Federal Housing Administration mortgage insurance more affordable, and I back a sense of the Congress that homelessness in America should be eliminated.

The City of Los Angeles has the nation’s largest population of chronically homeless people. This is unacceptable. I introduced the Housing Homeless Veterans Act to address our veteran homeless problem by directing housing vouchers for homeless veterans to areas of the country where they are needed most. As a member of the Congressional Homelessness Caucus I will continue to work to address this growing problem.
