Sign the National Letter Opposing Cuts to HOME!

Now that Congressional leaders have begun to negotiate a possible budget deal to raise the spending cuts required by the Budget Control Act, it is critical that they hear from as many HOME supporters as possible.
 
For that reason, the HOME Coalition has launched a national sign on letter, urging Congress to lift the spending caps and restore HOME funding to at least $1.06 billion.
 
 
We encourage all organizations to sign the letter and share it widely with as many local organizations, government officials, and advocates as possible before the
Monday, November 9 deadline. To see whether your organization has already signed on, see the list of the current 1,500 signers.
 
Because of the tight spending caps, Congress proposed to severely cut---and even essentially eliminate---the HOME program this year. These cuts will only make it that much harder for low-income seniors, veterans, children, people with disabilities, and people experiencing homelessness to access safe, decent, and affordable housing. HOME is too critical, too successful, and too effective a tool to face any further cuts.
 
 
Also, Enterprise and the #CapsHurt Communities campaign are hosting a webinar on October 19 to discuss the
coalition's fall campaign to raise the spending caps, how local communities may be impacted, and what you can do to engage your Members of Congress and your local media.
