Your Efforts are Working. The Pressure is Building! Keep Emailing HUD!

As we shared at the Town Hall, the QC faces a housing shortage--we need at least 6,645 units ensure safe, decent, and affordable housing for every neighbor. Testimonies from directly impacted people powerfully demonstrate how municipal divestment from housing has catastrophic consequences for us and our neighbors. As LaShanna Dixon said: "For my cousin Branden, the cost of renting in the Quad Cities was his life. I am here today because I don't think renting should be a death sentence." We cannot let another collapse like the one at 324 Main Street happen ever again. We will continue the struggle together: "Fight, fight, fight! Housing is a Human Right!"
That's why the Quad Cities community is calling HUD to come to town. We need HUD to audit local municipal compliance with HUD standards for inspections and ensure proper investment in safe, decent, and affordable housing. If you have not emailed already, please email HUD to demand a meeting. Click this link to ENSURE HUD hears our message.
