H.R. 5793: Housing Choice Voucher Mobility Demonstration Act of 2018
On Motion to Suspend the Rules and Pass in the House

This was a vote to pass H.R. 5793 (115th) in the House. This vote was taken under a House procedure called “suspension of the rules” which is typically used to pass non-controversial bills. Votes under suspension require a 2/3rds majority. A failed vote under suspension can be taken again.

H.R. 5793 creates demonstration project in which the administration of housing choice vouchers (HCV) would be designed to encourage movement to lower-poverty areas with expanded employment opportunities. To ensure the demonstration has the greatest impact, H.R. 5793 would require the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to award demonstration program funds on a competitive basis and prioritize regional collaborations among Public Housing Authorities (PHAs) that have high concentrations of voucher holders in low-opportunity neighborhoods, a high-performing Family Self Sufficiency program, or a strong regional collaboration including one or more small housing agencies, among other factors. H.R. 5793 would also require that five years after implementation of the demonstration program, the legislation requires the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development to submit a report that evaluates the effectiveness of the program.
