Take Action! Join Today’s National Call-In Day

Tell your members of Congress to pass final spending bills for FY 2017 before the Friday, April 28 deadline and to protect affordable housing investments.

NLIHC and the Campaign for Housing and Community Development Funding are holding a national call-in day TODAY to urge members of Congress to pass final spending bills for fiscal year 2017 before the Friday, April 28 deadline and to protect affordable housing investments. Unless Congress extends the deadline or passes full spending bills, the federal government will shut down and vital investments in affordable housing and community development will be put at risk.

Call the congressional switchboard toll free at 202-224-3121 or click below.

Call Congress!

Sample Script:

Please work with your colleagues to pass a final spending bill for fiscal year 2017 that protects affordable housing investments at HUD and USDA. These resources keep roofs over the heads of low income families, seniors, people with disabilities, and other vulnerable people. Funding affordable housing is a smart investment because such housing leads to better health and education outcomes and boosts economic mobility and the local economy. Our communities are stronger because of HUD and USDA. Please do not put these resources at risk by failing to pass full-year spending bills by the April 28 deadline.

Call Congress!
