Urge Congress to Address Housing Scarcity

Keep the momentum from Hill Day going this week! Even if you were unable to attend, remember to send an August Advocacy letter to your legislators. NAHRO makes advocacy easy.

Send a letter through our Action Alert Center to emphasize the importance of increasing funding for HOME Investment Partnerships, Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) programs, and the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC). Congress must invest in these programs to strengthen our nation’s housing stock and ensure that families have access to safe and affordable housing.

Rising rents, increased home prices, and lack of supply have exacerbated the affordability crisis. The HOME Investment Partnerships, CDBG, and LIHTC are proven solutions that facilitate preservation, new construction, and community development. As Congress continues discussing HUD funding for next year, urge your legislators to prioritize programs that will increase our nation’s housing supply. All families deserve access to safe and affordable housing.

If you need help sending your advocacy letters, watch our Action Alert Center Training Video for detailed instructions on how to participate in NAHRO’s advocacy campaign. You can also follow along with this year’s goals on the August Advocacy website.
