Tell Congress to Make Funding For Affordable Housing and Community Development a Top Priority
On February 9, President Obama released his fiscal year (FY) 2017 budget request, officially kicking off the start of this year’s appropriations cycle. Now it is Congress’s turn to decide how to divvy up the available funding among the 12 Appropriations Subcommittees–including the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development (THUD) Subcommittee that oversees funding for affordable housing and community development programs.
It is critical that Congress provide the THUD Subcommittee with the highest allocation possible. With this investment, communities across the nation can access the federal resources they need to thrive and to meet the needs of their most vulernable residents.
Enterprise and other leaders of the Campaign for Housing and Community Development launched a national letter to bring together affordable housing, community development and transportation supporters around a unified message: the allocation to the THUD Subcommittee must be a top priority!
We encourage all national, state, and local organizations, government officials, and advocates to sign the letter and share this Action Alert on social media.
Thank you for your advocacy.
