WASHINGTON, D.C. – Wisconsin Congressman Sean Duffy, Ranking Member of the Financial Services Subcommittee on Housing & Insurance, today co-introduced the Housing Choice Voucher Mobility Demonstration Act of 2019 with Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO). The legislation would authorize the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development to carry out a housing choice voucher mobility demonstration to encourage families receiving such voucher assistance to move to lower-poverty areas and expand access to opportunity areas.
“I’m proud to join Emanuel Cleaver to reintroduce this bipartisan legislation to help break the generational cycle of poverty. People deserve the chance to relocate to areas with more opportunity and greater economic freedom,” said Congressman Duffy. “I’d like to thank Emanuel Cleaver for continuing to partner with me to tackle this major contributor to generational poverty.”
