|Key Information from the October 19 "Spending Caps" Webinar
Thank you for registering for the October 19 webinar, Spending Caps, Budget Negotiations, and the Impact on Housing and Community Development in Your Community. Hundreds of housing, homeless, and community development stakeholders joined you on the webinar to learn more about the federal spending caps and how they will impact programs we care about if left in place.
Here are the slides from the webinar presentation: http://nlihc.org/sites/default/files/CapsHurt_October19_slides.pdf

After Congress addresses the federal debt ceiling in early November, we expect all focus to shift to whether and how Congress and the White House will decide to lift the sequester spending caps.
The December 11 expiration of the current Continuing Resolution, which is keeping the federal government open absent appropriations bills, is just seven weeks away. Between now and December 11, we must continue to urge Congress to raise the spending caps so housing, homeless, and community development programs can be adequately funded in fiscal year 2016. Please respond to requests from the Caps Hurt Communities campaign and your national partners to engage your members of Congress as often as you can.
Caps Hurt Communities is a Campaign for Housing and Community Development Funding (CHCDF) initiative. CHCDF is a working group of more than 70 national housing and community development organizations. Read more about the Caps Hurt Communities campaign by visiting www.capshurtcommunities.org.
