Telling the Story of the Need for Vouchers

Making the Case for More
Funding for the Homeless

Funding Housing Choice Vouchers in FY 2016Monarch Housing is collecting stories that will help make the case for increased Housing Choice Voucher funding in fiscal year (FY) 2016. Can your organization help us connect to a voucher story?

We are interested in the stories of:

  • Individuals or families who are on waiting lists for vouchers
  • Success stories of individuals and families who have recently been housed through vouchers and/or
  • Housing authorities that having voucher waiting lists

The stories may be shared with reporters interested in covering the voucher funding issue and/or included in pieces submitted by Monarch Housing or a partner organization to news outlets in New Jersey.

Individuals, families, organizations and agencies willing to share their stories should be comfortable with both sharing their stories with Monarch Housing staff and also possibly with speaking directly with members of the press.

Below are a few links of posts to our website blog from 2014 that provide examples of how voucher stories have been used in the past in advocacy efforts to increase funding.

Please contact Kate Kelly at Monarch if you have stories that would be helpful to our effort in showing the need to increase federal funding for Housing Choice Vouchers – #Vouchers4NJ.
