Many low-income families and persons experiencing homelessness have debt to the utility companies, which are now barriers to their ability to securing housing. Would you support increasing debt forgiveness programs for 3-4 years to help more people access housing? (Y/N/Explain)

There needs to be accountability, but this is certainly a barrier to securing housing. I would want to study this issue in more depth.
