Hey, big news!

Today, the House passed the Tax Extenders bill (after their hiccup yesterday). 
As a reminder, the bill capitalizes the National Housing Trust Fund (NHTF) and extends the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) Emergency Contingency Fund (ECF).

The bill now heads to the Senate, and we need your Senators to vote for the legislation, H.R. 4213.

WHAT YOU CAN DO:

  • Call the housing staffer in your Senators’ offices next week. Congressional office phone numbers can be found by calling the U.S. Capitol Switchboard at 202-224-3121.
  • Urge them to continue their support for preventing and ending homelessness in your community by voting YES on H.R. 4213.
  • Call your Representatives and thank them for passing H.R. 4213. The list of who voted for the bill will available here shortly.

Needless to say, none of this progress can happen without your voice and support. Thank you so much! for your efforts to sway your members – and don’t stop now!
