The Campaign for Housing and Community Development Funding (CHCDF) sent a letter to House and Senate leadership urging lawmakers to work together to lift caps on federal spending equally for defense and non-defense programs and to ensure housing, community development and transportation programs receive the highest amount of funding possible. The letter was signed by nearly 3,500 national, state, local, and tribal organizations and governments.
The letter reads, “These programs strengthen our country and economy by creating millions of jobs and offering a safety net to our most vulnerable households. With more families struggling to make ends meet, and our nation’s affordable housing and transportation infrastructure deteriorating, federal investments are ever more critical to sustain our communities and ensure families thrive.”
