The partial federal government shutdown has become the longest in U.S. history, and low-income people served by affordable housing programs are increasingly being negatively impacted. The longer the shutdown continues, the greater its harm will be, and the lowest-income people – seniors, people with disabilities, and families with children – will suffer the most. Learn more about the shutdown’s impacts on affordable housing and community development programs during a national call on Tuesday, January 15 at 4:00 p.m. ET. NLIHC and other leaders of the Campaign for Housing and Community Development Funding will provide updates on the latest information and guidance on how advocates can engage lawmakers to help end the shutdown.

Elayne Weiss, NLIHC senior policy analyst, will moderate the event.
