New Jersey nonprofits working to create affordable housing and end homelessness may sign on to this letter by 12 p.m. noon on Monday, September 30, 2013.

H.R. 2790 – the Housing Assistance Efficiency Act, would allow nonprofits to administer rental assistance. We need to ensure H.R. 2790 has as many cosponsors as possible!
