Last summer, two of NRDC’s EEFA interns, Brianna Johnson-King and Yuran Chen, went on a cross-country tour of affordable housing to hear the stories of the residents who benefit from federal programs such as LIHTC, rental assistance, WAP, and LIHEAP. While in Ohio, they interviewed four young, hardworking women that represent why assisted housing is so important. At crucial points in their lives, affordable housing was the key to stability and the foundation that enabled each woman to care for their families.
