Our Homes, Our Voices - National Housing Week of Action, July 22-29

Categories: Federal


Desperately needed housing and homelessness programs endangered.

The House appropriations committee has approved a Transportation, Housing and Urban Development budget bill for FY 2018 that endangers desperately needed housing and homelessness programs. There is still time to influence members of Congress as the budget process continues in the coming weeks and months. See more about our current federal budget and policy priorities here.

More broadly, as a community we need to make our voices heard. Three out of four people eligible for housing assistance in our country do not receive it. As you know, New York faces its own homelessness crisis with 86,000 homeless people. We need to make our voices heard.

Join us next week, from July 22 to 29, for a national housing week of action, “Our Homes, Our Voices.”

Supportive and affordable housing is our best chance for ending homelessness in our state. All people deserve access to basic living standards, including a safe place to call home. In order to make this a reality, we need adequate investment from all levels of government.
