A year into the COVID-19 pandemic, millions of Americans are still unemployed or working from home. More time at home means more energy use and higher utility bills.
25% of all households in the U.S. say they are struggling with utility bills. Families struggling to afford their bills are forced to make the impossible choice to cut back on critical necessities such as medication or food or continue heating or cooling their home.
With many parts of the country experiencing extreme weather conditions, Congress can and must act to ensure that all Americans can remain #SafeAtHome - starting with immediate relief of a moratorium on utility shut-offs and alleviating utility debt.
Then it’s time to get to work weatherizing homes. Making homes more energy-efficient not only improves the health and safety of working families but also provides hundreds of thousands of local, good-paying jobs. Sign the petition to urge Congress to pass funding to modernize and upgrade at least one million low-income family homes.
