This is the June 9, 2021 hearing on "Universal Vouchers: Ending Homelessness and Expanding Economic Opportunity in America," held before the U.S. House Committee on Financial Services. From the opening statement of Emanuel Cleaver: "I am proud to join Chairwoman Waters and the distinguished gentleman from New York, Mr. Torres, in proposing the Ending Homelessness Act of 2021, which would make Housing Choice Vouchers an entitlement for those who qualify, and would ban landlords from discriminating against voucher holders, including banning discrimination based on source-of-income and veteran status. Rigorous research continues to demonstrate that vouchers sharply reduce homelessness, housing instability, and overcrowding, and would better prepare the nation to handle the next health or economic crisis." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Chancela Al-Mansour, Howard Husock, Ben Metcalf, and Ann Oliva.
