September is NLIHC Membership Month! Throughout the month NLIHC will be celebrating its members, the key to NLIHC’s strength, and inviting new individuals and organization to join the movement for affordable homes for those most in need. More than 1,000 housing advocates, resident associations, local governments, non-profit organizations, and individuals around the country are NLIHC members. These members power our work to ensure the lowest income individuals have access to safe, decent, and affordable homes.
This week, NLIHC is highlighting how members have “opened the door” to recent policy successes, like achieving an increase of 10% in the FY18 HUD funding for affordable housing (defeating the administration’s call for cuts of 15%), the permanent reauthorization of the “Protecting Tenants at Foreclosure Act,” the preservation of funding to the national Housing Trust Fund in the face of threats to eliminate it, committee passage of legislation to permanently authorize the Community Development Block Grant-Disaster Recovery program, and much more!
Please help us recruit new NLIHC members – friends, family members, colleagues, and partner-organizations! Share why you are an NLIHC member and how your membership helps achieve key affordable housing policy victories on social media: tweet @NLIHC and use #MembersAreTheKey.
