Firebrand Senator and potential 2020 hopeful Kamala Harris unveiled her plan Monday to drastically increase tax credits to help subsidize those who are unable to pay their rent, according to the Washington Post.

The new scheme -set to be officially announced Thursday- would allocate over $13.3 million in federal subsidies to provide tax credits to help certain families pay their housing costs.

“There’s much more interest now among Democratic lawmakers and representatives in high-cost areas about housing policy as more and more places fall into the high-cost bucket,” said one housing expert from the Brookings Institute.

The new program would allocate tax credits to those earning less than $100,000 a year and spend more than 30% of their net income on living expenses.

Harris’ proposal comes days after other liberal politicians -including former President Barack Obama and Mayor of Chicago Rahm Emanuel- praised a potential “universal basic income” for America’s poor.
