NAHMA Grassroots Alert: Urge Congress to Prevent a Government Shutdown and Support FY19 Funding for Affordable Housing Programs

NAHMA Grassroots Alert: Urge Congress to Prevent a Government Shutdown and Support FY19 Funding for Affordable Housing Programs

Congress is in deep disagreement over immigration funding and this is jeopardizing government funding for HUD and USDA for the rest of this fiscal year (FY19).

Ask lawmakers to fully fund affordable housing programs. A government shutdown and temporary stopgap funding measures are harmful to families living in affordable housing, and they are harmful to our industry.

  • Request full funding: Urge your lawmakers to enact full-year funding for HUD and USDA housing programs. Fiscal Year 2019 Factsheet is attached and available here.

Urge Congress to support the Housing Credit.

Advocate to strengthen the Housing Credit. As Congress negotiates the spending bills, help us build support for provisions that strengthen the production and preservation of affordable rental housing throughout the country.

  • Relay the message to Congressional leadership: Please ask your legislators to urge Congressional leadership to include provisions of the Affordable Housing Credit Improvement Act in the tax extension package. These sample letters can be customized to your respective Senators or Representatives.

Please take a moment to email your lawmakers.

Your legislators want to hear from you. Look-up your legislators or  to NAHMA Government Affairs staff for assistance with advocacy in DC and in your district.
