National Conference Call on the Shutdown’s Impacts on Affordable Housing and Community Development

Join Jan. 15 National Call to Learn About the Impacts of the Government Shutdown on Affordable Housing and Community Development Programs

The partial government shutdown, now three weeks long, continues with no end in sight. Low-income people served by affordable housing programs are already 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.  Register here.

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.

Read NLIHC’s latest update on the shutdown here. You can also see an interactive map and a state-by-state breakdown of how the shutdown is impacting some HUD-assisted housing.

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

  • Doug Rice, Center on Budget and Policy Priorities
