The House and Senate Committees on Appropriations will soon decide how much funding each of the 12 appropriations subcommittees will receive in FY15. It is critical that the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies (THUD) Subcommittees in the House and Senate receive allocations that are at the highest possible levels, so they have the resources they need to fully fund all housing programs. President Obama will submit his preliminary FY 2015 budget on March 4, which will included the president’s key proposals as well as top-line discretionary spending levels.
Join our friends at NACEDA and their effort by signing a letter to House and Senate Appropriations leaders urging the highest possible allocations!
Here’s how you can take action to support HUD funding:
- Sign on for your organization.
- Share the letter with your members and partners and encourage them to sign on. Members of Congress expressed a particular interest in Chambers of Commerce last year. If you work with a chamber or downtown business council, please ask them to sign on.
The deadline to sign the letter is March 12.
