As early as next week, Congress is expected to come to some sort of deal on the “Fiscal Cliff.” The fiscal cliff includes sequestration, the automatic, 8.2 percent across-the-board cuts to non-defense, discretionary spending, which includes nearly all programs within the Department of Housing and Urban Development, including many affordable housing and homelessness programs. Join the Alliance and its partners across the country to call your Members of Congress to tell them the negative impacts sequestration would have on your communities’ efforts to prevent and end homelessness.
We must make sure to impart to our Members the importance of housing and homelessness programs in our communities before a final deal is made. Call your Members of Congress THIS WEEK as part of a National Call-In Week!
Here’s what you can do:
Step 1 Contact your Senators and Representative(s) THIS WEEK and ask to speak to the person who handles housing issues.
Congressman Cedric Richmond can be emailed here, reached by phone (202) 225-6636, or tweet @RepRichmond!
Senator Mary Landrieu can be emailed here, reached by phone (202) 224-5824, or tweet @senlandrieu!
Senator David Vitter can be emailed here or reached by phone (202) 224-4623.
Step 2 Use these talking points to explain how 8.2 percent cuts to HUD programs will negatively impact your community.
Step 3 Let UNITY know if you have any questions and/or which office(s) you contacted! Email Emily Danielson, Director of Research and Public Policy at firstname.lastname@example.org.View Post
