During Queensbridge visit, Schumer calls on White House to double investments in public housing

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer visited the Queensbridge Houses in Long Island City — the largest public housing development in North America — to urge the Biden administration to double its funding for public housing in the American Jobs Plan.

Schumer joined community leaders and called for at least an $80 billion investment in federal public housing funds to remedy decades of disinvestment, bad management and federal neglect.
