Bill will include a significant infusion for housing, including $4 billion for homelessness programs and several billion in total for public housing, project-based rental assistance, and housing choice vouchers. These are the lower numbers, however.
There are also some major issues with the bill, such as whether $1200/person+ $500/child in cash assistance is enough, whether $350 b in small business loans is responsive to the current crisis, and whether $500 b in loans for big companies is a good idea.
