HOME Coalition – Invite Your Members of Congress to Learn More About HOME!

CARH’S BROADCAST E-MAIL – Legislative Update

October 21, 2015

The HOME Coalition is a group of industry representatives that works to increase awareness about the HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME), its importance to the development and provision of affordable housing, and the need for funding.

As a part of the Coalition, CARH is sharing the announcement that next week, the HOME Coalition will release its new report, “Building HOME: The HOME Investment Partnerships Program’s Impact on America’s Families and Communities,” at a Congressional Briefing for members of Congress and their staff.

We encourage all CARH members to (1) share this invitation with your members of Congress and (2) ask them to attend the HOME Coalition Congressional Briefing on Wednesday, October 28 from 2:00 P.M. to 3:00 P.M. in the Congressional Visitors Center Room SVC 203.

The first-of-its-kind report analyzes the program’s economic impact in all 50 states–including job creation and local economic activity–and features more than 100 HOME Success Stories from communities across the nation. The briefing will also include practitioners who will discuss how HOME is used to attract significant public and private resources to build and preserve affordable homes locally.

In addition, please share the National HOME Sign-On Letter with as many local organizations, government officials, and advocates as possible. The deadline to sign on is November 9. Congress is beginning to negotiate a possible budget deal, so it is critical that HOME supporters make their voice heard. To see which organizations have already signed on, check out the current list of 1,500 signers.

If you have any questions or need any additional information, please do not hesitate to contact CARH at 703-837-9001 or carh@carh.org.
