A letter signed by 3,267 organizations was delivered to Congressional leaders on March 19, urging them to allocate the highest possible levels of funding to programs protecting economic and transit opportunity, as well as ensuring a safe and stable home for all Americans.
The letter urges leaders of the House and Senate Appropriations Committees to allocate increased funding to the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies Subcommittees, so they have the resources they need to fund housing, community development, and transportation programs. This annual sign-on letter is a project of the Campaign for Housing and Community Development Funding, a coalition of national organizations including NACEDA.
NACEDA and our members put considerable focus on this letter because it's the best formal opportunity to increase the size of the pie. After this, we're all competing for our slice of the pie.
Read the letter and see all 3,627 organizations that signed on.
A diverse range of national, state and local organizations signed on, including the League of American Bicyclists, the AIDS Institute, Habitat for Humanity International, and the Association of Jewish Aging Services. The extraordinary number of signers and their diversity clearly demonstrate broad national support for responsible funding levels for HUD and the Department of Transportation.
NACEDA and our DC coalition partners are sharing the letter with Members of Congress. We suggest you do the same. You worked hard to meet our 3,000 signer goal. Let us make sure it is seen and read.
I look forward to continued work together, demonstrating the strong grassroots support for economic, transit, and home opportunity for all Americans.
