PHAs and Industry Groups Send Joint Letter to Congress – Please Send to Your Reps!
In partnership with our sister groups CLPHA, PHADA and the Moving to Work (MTW) Collaborative, NAHRO has drafted and sent a letter to the House and the Senate thanking them for the nearly $3 billion in affordable housing assistance in the CARES Act, and asking for substantial resources and flexibilities, including:
- An additional infusion of $8.5 billion for the Operating Fund and the Section 8 voucher program;
- An increased supply of Tenant Protection Vouchers;
- Additional rental assistance for families in need; and
- A $70 billion investment in public housing infrastructure.
Nearly 800 PHAs and organizations joined NAHRO, PHADA, CLPHA, and the MTW Collaborative in signing the letter. You and your partners can also send the letter to your members of Congress through NAHRO’s Advocacy Action Center. A copy of the PHA signed letter that was sent to Congress is available on the NAHRO website.
