Help make sure housing is part of recovery plan

Posted by: VHFA on 1/14/2009

The Federal government is currently working on an economic recovery plan that could amount to $1 trillion.

It's important for the future of affordable housing and the fight to end homelessness that housing is included in that plan.

Our friends at the National Low Income Housing Coalition (NLIHC) suggest you contact your U.S. Representatives and Senators and encourage them to support a plan that includes several housing-related elements:

  • National Housing Trust Fund
  • Housing Choice Vouchers
  • Homelessness prevention
  • Renters in foreclosure
  • Public housing
  • HUD multifamily housing
  • Gulf Coast recovery

Details on those initiatives along with contact information are available at the NLIHC Web site.
