Sign on to Dear Colleague Letters
U.S. Representatives Rush Holt, William Pascrell, Frank Pallone, and Albio Sires have signed on to U.S. Rep Gwen Moore’s (D-WI-4) “Dear Colleague” congressional letter expressing their support for $2.405 billion in funding for HUD’s McKinney-Vento homeless assistance programs in FY 2015.
U.S. Reps. Pascrell and Sires signed Rep. Jerold Nadler’s Dear Colleague letter supporting increased funding for Housing Choice Vouchers (HCV.) In order to restore all lost HCV due to sequestration, HUD needs an additional $320 million above the President’s budget request.
U.S. Reps. Pascrell, Donald Payne, Jr. Pallone, and Sires have signed on to U.S. Rep. Marcia Fudge’s Dear Colleague letters on the HOME Program. The letter requests a return to fiscal year 2011 levels of $1.6 billion for the HOME Program which is an increase over the President’s request of $950 million.
