Join Today’s 3 p.m. ET Tweetstorm Urging Congress to #FullyFundHousing Programs
Please join NLIHC and the Campaign for Housing and Community Development Funding for a tweetstorm today, February 13, from 3:00-4:00 p.m. ET to urge Congress to avoid another government shutdown and fully fund affordable housing and community development programs. Use #FullyFundHousing in your tweets and tag your member of Congress.
President Trump announced on January 25 an agreement to temporarily reopen the federal government for three weeks — ending our nation’s longest shutdown in history — giving legislators time to negotiate a larger spending deal and border security. The short-term funding bill expires on February 15. If Congress and the White House fail to reach a deal by then, the government will again shut down, further harming low-income renters and undermining the short-term operations and long-term viability of our nation’s affordable housing and community development programs.
By participating in today’s tweetstorm, you can urge Congress to ensure affordable housing and community development programs receive robust federal funding in full-year spending bills for HUD and USDA.
