The United for Homes (UFH) campaign continued its series of monthly webinars for current campaign endorsers with the March 8 webinar “New Partners, New Voices: Expanding the United for Homes Campaign to Include Allies in the Health Care, Education, Transportation, and Labor Movements.” This webinar explored how endorsers of the UFH campaign could expand support among non-housing partners that share a commitment to social justice. Bringing on endorsers from these sectors will be essential as the campaign builds beyond the current 2,310 UFH organizational and elected official supporters.
Attendees of the webinar learned about key messaging around the intersectionality of affordable housing and education, public health, wages, and transportation and gained tips to successfully mobilize groups from these sectors in support of rebalancing federal housing policy to ensure the lowest income people in America have decent, stable, and affordable homes.
The next UFH endorser webinar is scheduled for Wednesday, April 12, 2 pm ET. This webinar, “Just in Time for Tax Day—Deductions, Credits, and Homeownership,” will explain the tax impact of converting the MID to a tax credit. Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center Institute Fellow and Co-Director Eric Toder will provide a detailed analysis of the implications of the UFH proposal to convert the deduction to a credit.
