WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Jared Moskowitz (D-Florida) announced he is calling on members of the Congressional Caucus on Homelessness to convene a roundtable in Washington, D.C. with key federal stakeholders to discuss tangible steps the Federal government can take to address the housing and homelessness issue facing communities across the nation.

In a letter to the Caucus, Moskowitz wrote: “I recently convened a roundtable discussion in my Congressional district with homelessness experts, elected officials, and key stakeholders to discuss Broward County’s housing and homelessness crisis. As you know, on any night in the United States, more than half a million people experience homelessness. Now more than ever, there’s a shortage of housing that low-income people can afford, and as that gap between income and housing costs grows, more people across our nation face homelessness.”

Moskowitz continued by saying, “According to the 2022 Point-In-Time Homeless Count, which is required by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and determines federal funding for homeless services and programs, there were 2,054 persons experiencing homelessness in Broward County. Of this number, 1,228 were experiencing unsheltered homelessness, with less than 600 beds available in county shelters.”

As a member of Congress, Moskowitz remains committed to pushing federal policies that will address affordable housing, support housing programs from HUD, assist with public safety, and provide employee assistance.
