Mayor Steinberg's office told ABC10 on Monday that "House America is also an opportunity to collaborate with national partners on innovative solutions for housing."

“It will take all levels of government working together to bring all Americans indoors to safe, dignified spaces,” Mayor Steinberg said in a news release Monday. “I’m proud to join Secretary Fudge on House America to ensure that Sacramento continues to be a leader by using American Rescue Plan resources to house people experiencing homelessness.”

Mayor Steinberg mentioned his newly released Master Plan to rein in on the unhoused community of Sacramento during his remarks at the launch event.
