At the Oklahoma Coalition for Affordable Housing, we’re supporters of the National Housing Trust Fund campaign. This federal program is unique in its focus on extremely low income renters. The original campaign had more than 8,000 endorsing organizations by the time the trust fund was established in 2008. The National Low Income Housing Coalition is now reinvigorating the campaign, and rebuilding the list of supporters. Is your group on board? If not, endorse the campaign today!
This is a general endorsement in a broad sense, which means they would add your organization to a standing list of Housing Trust Fund supporters.
There is growing speculation that Congress might move on housing finance reform this fall or potentially in a lame duck session after the election. This could be an opportunity to expand funding for the national Housing Trust Fund. Additionally, recent pieces of legislation have been introduced that propose large increases in the Housing Trust Fund.
Thanks, as always, for your support.
