Congresswoman Deb Haaland (NM-01), held a Facebook Live discussion on access to education and affordable housing. During her address, Congresswoman Haaland discussed the importance of accessible education during this pandemic. Haaland also mentioned the role evictions and financial stress play in education. COVID-19 risks have moved schools to virtual learning from home beginning in the Spring of 2020. Provisions in the CARES Act that protected families from falling behind financially including a $1200 stimulus payment, $600 additional weekly unemployment benefits, and eviction protections expired at the end of July, raising concerns about an increase in evictions and foreclosures.
