Sign a Letter Telling Congress to Protect Critical Affordable Housing and Transportation Funding; Deadline Extended to March 31

Tell Congress to protect the federal spending needed to ensure families and communities can thrive. Sign your organization onto a letter from advocates calling on Congress to protect vital programs. The deadline for signing the letter has been extended to March 31.

The release of the Trump administration’s budget proposal on March 16 clearly showed that funding for affordable housing, community development, and transportation programs is under attack. Mr. Trump’s proposed budget cuts are designed to fall largely on critical safety net and other essential programs. Affordable housing, community development, and transportation programs that help raise families out of poverty—programs that are already facing significant reductions in the upcoming budget year because of the very low spending caps required by law – are at risk of even deeper cuts.

Organizations and advocates concerned about critical transportation, housing, community development, and homelessness programs are working together to circulate a letter urging Congress to protect these programs from cuts, to lift the harmful caps on federal spending, and to provide the highest level of funding possible for these programs in FY18.
