Protect Immigrant Families Access to Housing
President Biden Removed Harmful Housing Policies.
More Advocacy is Needed.
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security issued a final rule on the "public charge" regulation on September 8, adding critical protections to immigrant families' access to social safety net programs, including housing. Learn more here.
The Biden Administration has taken important steps to rescind, vacate, or withdraw proposed and finalized housing regulations that were intended to harm immigrant families. While these latest actions have been essential to ensure that families have access to critical housing programs, more has to be done to counteract the significant "chilling effect" caused by the previous administration's anti-immigrant rhetoric.
Keep Families Together urges advocated to remain engaged and prepared to fight against hateful policies that hurt immigrant families.
Our Vision. Our Work. Who We Are.
Keep Families Together is a joint effort with the National Housing Law Project (NHLP) and the National Low Income Housing Coalition (NLIHC) to provide resources and knowledge regarding past legislative and regulatory efforts to harm immigrant families' access to housing. While harmful policies have since been withdrawn, we believe that the preservation of this information is critical to protect, preserve, and expand future housing reforms for immigrant families.
