Senator Jeff Merkley (D-OR) and Representative Ritchie Torres (D-NY) are circulating a “Dear Colleague” letter urging congressional leaders to include the HoUSed campaign’s top priorities in any infrastructure package. Take action to urge your members of Congress to sign on by July 13!
The letter calls for:
- A major expansion of Housing Choice Vouchers to pave the way toward universal rental assistance for all eligible households
- $70 billion to repair and preserve public housing for current and future generations
- $45 billion for the national Housing Trust Fund to build and preserve new homes affordable to America’s lowest-income and most marginalized households
Your advocacy is needed!
Your members of Congress need to hear from you! Please email or call your senators and representative today and ask them to sign onto the Dear Colleague letter to show their support for including the HoUSed campaign’s top priorities.
