Imagine if you’re in a situation where you just lost your job because of something out of your control, and you can’t pay your rent, we need to take that stress away from people who might feel that way.

With every passing hour, cities, states across the world are taking increasingly drastic steps to try to slow the virus, steps that will also leave millions of people, especially hourly and low-wage workers, without work — and a paycheck.

They might lose their jobs, they might have their hours cut back because of loss of business, or they might get sick and not be able to show up at work, and then they face the possibility of eviction, and potentially homelessness.

That is a particularly critical issue right now, in the middle of a pandemic, when civilians are being told to practice social distancing and to self-quarantine if they are sick — impossibilities for many who are homeless.

Housing is a significant part of, especially if you’re sick, getting healthy. It’s a critical part of getting healthy and staying healthy.

Million people across the world are severely cost-burdened when it comes to housing, meaning they’re paying more than 50% of their income on rent or their mortgage — most people in that situation are earning less than $30,000 a year. including property owners, businesses or companies.

Short-term financial assistance would help poor families continue paying rent and buying food until the broader economy stabilizes. It would be more effective than a temporary moratorium on evictions (as some jurisdictions have enacted), since landlords also need money to pay their mortgages, property taxes, and utilities.
