Can Allison please talk about the difference between Section 8 and HC Vouchers? I had always thought Section 8 was also a choice voucher.

We all know these policies are sooo needed and helpful. Do we have data detailing the financial benefit to the community, city, state, etc. Some of my reps are only motivated to support policy if they can show the economic benefits along with the humanitarian benefits. For example, I know it costs less to provide vouchers and assist families as they progress rather than the support needed if they are homeless. Do we have that type of data. Thanks so much!! This is awesome!
