WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA), Chairwoman of the House Committee on Financial Services, met with Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen to discuss a variety of important issues including the implementation of emergency rental assistance.

“This morning, I met with Secretary Yellen to discuss my priorities and the many ways in which we can work together to ensure that our country is on a path to an equitable and just recovery,” said Congresswoman Maxine Waters. “After securing $46.6 billion in emergency rental assistance to provide relief to families in need, I am focused on making sure that this money is distributed and implemented correctly. As this pandemic crisis continues to impact communities across this country, it is critical that we efficiently and effectively use each of the tools at our disposal to keep people housed, support struggling families, and strengthen our economy. I look forward to continuing my work with Secretary Yellen.”
