Action Alert: National Sign-On Letter to #SaveHOME!

National Sign-On Letter to #SaveHOME

For over 20 years, the HOME Investment Partnerships program (HOME) has played a critical role in providing affordable housing opportunities for seniors, people with disabilities, low-income families with children, veterans, and people experiencing homelessness.

Despite HOME’s successful track record, Congress has proposed to severely cut—and even essentially eliminate—the program altogether. In response, Enterprise and other members of the HOME Coalition have launched a national sign-on letter urging Congress to restore HOME to at least $1.06 billion.

Sign Onto The #SaveHOME Letter TODAY!

HOME is simply too important, too successful, and too effective a tool to face any further cuts. In recent years, HOME has been slashed by 50 percent from $1.8 billion in 2010 to an all-time low of $900 million in 2015.

Now, the House has proposed to fund HOME at just $767 million or 42 percent of what it was in 2010. The House also proposed to essentially eliminate another important resource for local communities—the National Housing Trust Fund—using this funding to push HOME back to its record low level of $900 million. The Senate’s severe cuts amount to a 93 percent decrease, which would essentially eliminate the HOME program altogether.

We also encourage you to call your Representative(s) and Senators and ask them to restore funding for the HOME program. To help you get started, please feel free to use the resources below, including:

Thank you for your advocacy.
