ACTION ALERT: Urge Congress to Pass a Budget with Strong Homeless and Affordable Housing Programs

Housing Alert Icon

Due to a federal budget deal struck in 2023, paired with continued inflation in the market, congressional staff have indicated it will be a challenge finding enough funding simply to renew EXISTING housing programs in the annual federal budget – making housing this fiscal year a core that could impact the work of many of our ministries among people experiencing homelessness. Additionally, new restrictions on nonprofits in the House of Representatives have inadvertently barred faith-based and religious entities from making their own appropriations requests (read linked article for more context), adding new challenges for our partners active in providing essential shelter needs. Adequate funding for shelter and expanding housing supply is crucial to ensuring that all people, especially the most vulnerable among us, have access to a safe and affordable home.
Send a customized letter with your local experiences and convictions to your member of Congress urging them to support housing and shelter funding in the federal budget. Thank you for adding your voice!
