No NJ House Signed the Letter
Ask your Member to Join Their Support!
On July 21, 2014, 78 members of the House of Representatives sent a letter to Mel Watt, Director of the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA), urging him to lift the suspension of payments by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to the National Housing Trust Fund (NHTF) and Capital Magnet Fund.
Representative Keith Ellison (D-MN) spearheaded the letter.
To date, no members of New Jersey’s House delegation have signed on to the letter. You can email the housing staffer for your member and urge him to sign on to the letter.
In the letter, the House signatories wrote:
“We urge you to lift this temporary suspension and begin to follow the intent of Congress by contributing to the National Housing Trust Fund and the Capital Magnet Fund. The need for affordable rental housing and job and business investment in disadvantaged communities has only grown since the Great Recession…We respectfully request that you review this matter soon and respond to our request.”
