Final Advocacy Push for Build Back Better Act

Speak up once more for “Housing Is Infrastructure.” Congress is still negotiating the Build Back Better Act, and the $322 billion proposed for housing and community development programs is not guaranteed. Your legislators must hear from you that housing is a critical infrastructure need in your community. Send a letter urging them to pass the Build Back Better Act with as much funding as possible for HUD programs.

The $3.5 trillion Build Back Better Act is stuck in the House of Representatives as leadership tries to gather votes for the Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework (BIF), which is a related piece of President Biden’s “Build Back Better Agenda.” Right now, we have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to preserve and create affordable housing. The Build Back Better Act could include up to $80 billion for public housing, $75 billion for Housing Choice Vouchers, $40+ billion for HOME and CDBG, and billions more for other essential programs.

Your advocacy can help bring this bill across the finish line. Help us send 5,000 letters this week to Congress and the White House!
