Arnold Cohen, Policy Coordinator for the Network said,
“Once again, New Jersey advocates made today a great lobby day! This year we visited nine of our twelve Congressman!”
He encouraged the participants and the other concerned parties to continue to advocate with New Jersey’s Congressional delegation for Help to Strengthen Our Communities and to plan to join Lobby Day next year.
The group advocated for four key priorities affecting New Jersey:
The Federal Budget Should Prioritize Maintaining Housing That is Currently Affordable, Creating New Housing Lower Income People Can Afford and Ending Homelessness
Ensure Funding for the National Housing Trust Fund
Protect the Low Income Housing Tax Credit Program
Support efforts to Continue the Recovery and Rebuilding from Hurricane Sandy
