Speak Up Now: House to Vote on Build Back Better Act
The House of Representatives plans to vote on the Build Back Better Act by the end of the week. More than $150 billion for housing and community development programs remains in the bill. If passed, the Build Back Better Act would provide an historic investment in public housing, Housing Choice Vouchers (HVC), Project-Based Rental Assistance (PBRA), Low-Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTC), HOME program funds, and more. Now is the time to speak up in support of these funds for our communities.
Join your NAHRO colleagues for a Call-In Day this Friday, Nov. 19. Call your House representative and ask them to pass the Build Back Better Act with the $150 billion proposed for housing and community development. Remember to report your calls to NAHRO. Continue sending advocacy letters to your legislators’ offices. As Congress prepares final negotiations and votes on the Build Back Better Act, NAHRO must send a strong message in support of the housing funds. Our thousands of members and the millions of residents we serve could benefit from these investments for generations. The significance of this moment cannot be overstated.
