Calling on Congress to Raise the Caps

Provide Adequate Funding for Housing Programs

Hill UpdateThe National Supportive Housing Coalition is circulating a sign on letter addressed to House and Senate leadership that asks Congress to raise the sequester spending caps for fiscal year (FY) 2016 to provide adequate funding for housing, community development program and service programs that assist the most vulnerable populations, including the homeless.

Monarch Housing Associates has signed on and encourages organizations concerned about sequestration and the budget caps to do the same.

Writes the Coalition,

“The continuous cuts in recent years for these critical programs has resulted in the reduction of extremely low-income households, including those with persons with disabilities, seniors, families with children and persons experiencing homelessness to find affordable housing and receive supportive services they need to maintain a home.”

The deadline to sign the letter is Tuesday, September 22, 2015. Click here to email Hilary Gawrilow at CSH if you organization would like to sign the letter.
