Shutdown update

Between 70,000 and 85,000 low-income households that rely on assistance for housing—many elderly or disabled, and some of whom make less than $13,000 per year—could see shocks to their housing status if the shutdown persists.

Andrew LeBovidge, the leader of the National Air Traffic Controllers Association, predicted that the partial government shutdown's "ripple effect" may last months, "if not years," for aviation safety professionals.

Hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of low-income seniors, people with disabilities, and families with children that receive federal rental assistance face severe hardship if the government shutdown extends into February and March.
