Use the above sample letters as guides for contacting your Members of Congress urging them to provide $2.405 billion for the Department of Housing and Urban Development's (HUD)'s McKinney-Vento programs in fiscal year (FY) 2015 and to sign-on to the House or Senate Dear Colleague letter (currently being circulated by Representative Moore in the House and Senator Reed in the Senate). Direct these letters to the attention of the person who handles housing issues for your Member's office.
We have set a goal of sending at least 500 letters to Members of Congress by March 31. After sending your letters, make sure to contact Kate Seif at firstname.lastname@example.org or Julie Klein at email@example.com so we can keep track of the total number of letters sent. See our thermometer below for an update on our progress toward reaching our goal!
Download the editable documents above to personalize these templates. These versions can be shared with colleagues and partners electronically as well.
Please also forward along the sample action alert to your email networks and ask them to send letters to their Members of Congress.
This is our tracker! Help us meet our goal!
