Sign On to the National Letter to Support Maximum Housing and Transportation Funding by Wednesday, March 12
Last year, over 2,400 organizations signed a letter to support increasing the federal allocation for housing, community development and transportation funding. Members of Congress noted the signifcance of the letter and it made a positive impact on the amount of funding available to the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the Department of Transportation (DOT). Please join this year's effort!
Why This Is Important
The House and Senate Committees on Appropriations will soon decide how much funding each appropriations subcommittee will receive in fiscal year 2015. This is the one opportunity to advocate for the HUD and DOT budgets to be fully funded.
How You Can Take Action
Sign on to urge House and Senate Appropriations Committee leaders to allocate the highest possible levels of funding to the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies (THUD) Subcommittees, so they have the resources they need to fully fund all housing programs. Read the full letter.
Encourage organizations in your network to sign on too! Members of Congress expressed a particular interest in Chambers of Commerce last year. If you work with a local chamber or downtown business council that cares about Americans having a stable home and access to transportation and opportunity, please ask them to sign the letter.
Letter Closes Wednesday, March 12
