Rent Relief Act
Americans are paying more than half of their income in rent.

Rent is getting more and more expensive and wages are staying the same. Earning minimum wage in California and working 40 hours is not enough to afford rent.

You would need to have two jobs to afford an apartment, bills, and medicines. As a result millions of Americans are evicted from their home every year. Half a million people in America are homeless.
