If you are reaching out to our U.S. Senators and your Representative, we have specific images with photos from last year’s event that you can use.
Using these images and tagging the elected officials is a great way to encourage them to join us! Stay tuned for these images which will be coming soon!
“No Housing Cuts” will be the theme that will be shared with our elected officials with the message that cuts are hurting our communities that serve low-income families, the homeless and those with special needs.
We hope that you will join us in DC on July 26. If you have not already registered for the Congressional Reception, here is the link to do so.
The impact of sequestration and budget cuts has reduced the budget of the Housing and Urban Development (HUD) as well as other domestic programs. The lack of affordable homes and the resources needed to maintain existing public housing has created an affordable housing state of emergency in NJ.
The goal of the event will be to bring a least 350 people to DC for the day. Both senators and all the members of the House representing NJ will be invited to attend and give brief remarks and it is hoped that they and their housing staff will attend the event.
