Thanks to the National Low Income Housing Coalition for this alert:
Affordable housing investments in the “Build Back Better Act” may be deeply cut or even eliminated. Act NOW!
President Biden and congressional leaders need to hear from you and from as many members of Congress as possible in support of essential and targeted housing investments currently included in the Build Back Better Act: $90 billion in new rental assistance, $80 billion to repair and preserve public housing, and $37 billion to build affordable apartments through the Housing Trust Fund. Together, these resources could end homelessness in America, and they must not be cut.We’ve worked decades for this opportunity to end homelessness – don’t let it pass us by. ACT TODAY!
Call your senators and representative TODAY and urge them to weigh in IMMEDIATELY with the White House, House Speaker Pelosi, and Senate Majority Leader Schumer in support of funding the HoUSed campaign’s priorities at the highest level possible.
Urge your representatives to sign onto the Dear Colleague Letter to show their support for these essential investments to end homelessness. Members of Congress can sign on by contacting Aaron Groce in Representative Ritchie Torres’s office (Aaron.Groce@mail.house.gov) by noon on Friday, October 8.
