Invite Your Members of Congress To Learn More About HOME!
Next week, the HOME Coalition will release its new report, "Building HOME: The HOME Investment Partnerships Program’s Impact on America’s Families and Communities," at a Congressional Briefing for members of Congress and their staff.
We encourage all organizations to (1) share this invitation with your members of Congress and (2) ask them to attend the HOME Coalition Congressional Briefing on Wednesday, October 28 from 2:00 P.M. to 3:00 P.M. in the Congressional Visitors Center Room SVC 203.
The first-of-its-kind report analyzes the program’s economic impact in all 50 states–including job creation and local economic activity–and features more than 100 HOME Success Stories from communities across the nation. The briefing will also include practitioners who will discuss how HOME is used to attract significant public and private resources to build and preserve affordable homes locally.
In addition, please share the National HOME Sign-On Letter with as many local organizations, government officials, and advocates as possible. The deadline to sign on is November 9. Congress is beginning to negotiate a possible budget deal, so it is critical that HOME supporters make their voice heard. To see which organizations have already signed on, check out the current list of 1,500 signers.
Thank you for your advocacy.
