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)

I am in favor of extending the duration in some instances. However we need a comprehensive approach that moves people from homelessness to homes. Workforce development plans that will aid in ending the need for these programs.
