Government Shutdown January 23, 2019


Sign onto National Letter Demanding Congress and the White House Reopen the Government and Fund Affordable Home Programs

Our friends at the National Low Income Housing Coalitions and other leaders of the Campaign for Housing and Community Development Funding are circulating a national letter calling on Congress and the Trump Administration to end the government shutdown - the longest ever - and ensure affordable home and community development programs receive robust funding.

Sign onto the letter demanding that Congress and President Trump immediately reopen the government. Organizations and local government officials are encouraged to sign on.

Low-income people served by affordable housing programs are already being negatively impacted by the shutdown. People from across the country have shared their stories of being threatened with increased rents or evictions, and other individuals have found that landlords will not rent to voucher holders out of concern that HUD will not pay them what is needed to cover their costs.

The longer the shutdown continues, the greater its harm will be, and the lowest-income people - seniors, people with disabilities, and families with children - will suffer the most.

Read NLIHC's latest update on the shutdown and "Point of View" from NLIHC President and CEO Diane Yentel. You can also see an interactive map and a state-by-state breakdown of how the shutdown is impacting some HUD-assisted housing.
