Join the National Call-in Day and Tell Your Members of Congress to Preserve Housing Investments and Pass Final Spending Bills for FY17
The National Call-in Day is on Wednesday, April 26, 2017, and this is the time to tell your members of Congress to pass final spending bills for fiscal year FY17 before the April 28 deadline and to protect affordable housing investments.
To avoid a government shutdown, lawmakers must pass spending bills by Friday, April 28, 2017. Failure to pass full spending bills puts vital investments in affordable housing and community development at risk.
By participating in a national call-in day on Wednesday, April 26, 2017, you can urge Congress to pass a clean budget and protect critical investments.
The National Low Income Housing Coalition (NLIHC) and the Campaign for Housing and Community Development Funding are holding the April 26 national call-in day. Tell your members of Congress to pass final spending bills for FY17 before the April 28 deadline and protect affordable housing investments.
When making your calls, please share any impacts you have on how the current budget uncertainty has hurt your community.
You can use this sample script when making your calls.
Please work with your colleagues to pass a final spending bill for fiscal year 2017 that protects affordable housing investments at the U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development (HUD.) These resources keep roofs over the heads of low-income families, seniors, people with disabilities, and other vulnerable people.
These resources are a smart investment because affordable housing leads to better health and education outcomes and boosts economic mobility and the local economy. Our communities are stronger because of HUD funding. Please do not put these resources at risk by failing to pass full-year spending bills by the April 28 deadline.
