More than 1,000 organizations signed onto NLIHC and the Campaign for Housing and Community Development Funding’s (CHCDF’s) letter to Congress and President Trump urging them to come to an agreement on final FY19 spending bills and to avoid another shutdown when the current continuing resolution ends on February 15. The letter emphasizes the tens of thousands of low-income households put at risk during the recent shutdown and urges passage of FY19 spending bills with robust funding for affordable housing and community development programs. The letter also urges congressional leadership and President Trump to lift the Budget Control Act spending caps for 2020, which would lead to drastic cuts to housing and community development programs.
The letter will be delivered to congressional offices this week.
