The Campaign for Housing and Community Development Funding (CHCDF) recently launched an effort to press Congress to lift the sequester caps on federal spending that continue to harm individuals and families served by CLPHA members.
CHCDF is asking the affordable-housing community to join the “Caps Hurt Communities” campaign and to take the following actions:
• Join the Caps Hurt Communities Campaign: Visit www.capshurtcommunities.org to join thousands of advocates across the country who are deeply concerned about the effects of sequestration cuts on critical housing and community development programs.
• Schedule In-district Meetings: In-district meetings are a good way to let your U.S. Representatives and Senators know how you really feel about sequestration budget cuts. Schedule in-district and in-state meetings with your U.S. Representatives and Senators between now and September 7.
• Get Vocal—National Call-in Days: National call-in days are scheduled for September 8, 9, and 10. On these days, please light up the switchboards of Congress. Let your voice be heard!
• Share Your Photos and Stories: Send your stories and photos to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will post them to the www.capshurtcommunities.org website.
