LOW INCOME HOUSING FUNDING IN SENATE RECOVERY BILL IN JEOPARDY - Call Senators NOW

This just in...

Included in the list of cuts being negotiated by moderate Democratic and Republican Senators in H.R. 1 the "American Recovery and Reinvestment Act" are ALL of the funds in the bill for public housing ($5B), assisted housing ($3.5 billion) and HOME, including the funds reallocated a few days ago as gap filler for LIHTC projects, as well as very deep cuts in funding for other programs including the Neighborhood Stabilization Program.

We believe it is urgent that Senators hear from constituents that these funds should not be cut.

Please let your networks know NOW.

You can use this link to contact your Senator.
