Kick off August Advocacy with Daily Emails to Washington, D.C.!

The U.S. Capitol.

Today, NAHRO kicks off August advocacy with an incredibly important topic: COVID-19 emergency relief. Despite months of stalled negotiations and expired benefits, little progress has been made toward the passage of an additional COVID-19 emergency package.

Congress and the White House need to feel the pressure from you! Please send a letter to your legislators and the White House every single day until a package is signed into law. Visit NAHRO’s Advocacy Action Center or use the NAHRO Advocacy App to send letters.

Every year, Congress departs Washington for the month of August to spend time at home connecting with constituents. While this August recess might be a little different because of the pandemic and the stalled negotiations on emergency legislation, lawmakers are still listening, especially during an election year.

NAHRO has set an ambitious goal of sending 8,501 letters to Capitol Hill in August. We need your help to achieve this goal! Every Monday throughout the month, we’ll focus on a new topic. Here are the important topics we’re targeting this year:

  • August 3: COVID-19 Response Resources
  • August 10: Universal Voucher Program
  • August 17: Increase housing supply
  • August 24: Opening Opportunities for Families
  • August 31: FY 2021 Transportation- HUD Funding

We’ve made it even easier for you to participate directly through your mobile phone. Download NAHRO’s new mobile Advocacy App today and send letters every week from your smartphone – watch this instructional video on how to access the app.
