Advocacy Made Simple! Become a NAHRO Congressional Contact 

June 24, 2022
by NAHRO staff report

Year after year NAHRO advocates raise their voices asking for vital funding to create and maintain affordable housing and community development programs. Just last August, NAHRO advocates sent more than 60,000 letters to their members of Congress. Keep the momentum going! In just five minutes NAHRO members can commit to advocacy by becoming a Congressional Contact

The ask is simple: Pledge to send action alerts to your members of Congress. In return, the NAHRO team will directly notify you of new letters in the Action Alert Center. Your commitment will help us target legislators to address critical affordable housing and community development legislation.  

NAHRO’s Congressional Contacts will receive the following:  

  • An entry for a chance to win a complimentary admission to NAHRO’s 2022 Online Summer Symposium Aug. 2-3  
  • Access to exclusive advocacy training from NAHRO staff  
  • Connection to a grassroots community of advocates across the country 

As times change, the need for advocacy does not. As NAHRO member and Congressional Contact Ronald Clewer said, “When it comes to legislative advocacy, we are the lived experience, and we must show up to advocate for our residents and those we aim to serve.” 

Join this network of Housers to help preserve and maintain America’s strong, sustainable communities.
