The Morning Flash

Attention NAHRO members! The Subcommittee markup of the T-HUD bill initially scheduled for July 14 has been postponed. As a result, NAHRO’s national call-in day (originally scheduled for today) will also be postponed.  In the meantime, please continue to reach out to your members of Congress and tell them about the importance of affordable housing and community development programs in your community.

Don’t forget: This summer, anyone who registers for a NAHRO seminar will be eligible to win an iPod Shuffle! A winner will be randomly selected for each seminar held in July and August. Click here to register.

In other news, the Obama Administration launched a new initiative yesterday called Strong Cities, Strong Communities to spark economic growth in local communities. Launched in six cities across the country, the Administration hopes to work with local governments and communities to improve the way the federal government does business, provides assistance and supports and becomes partners in growth.
