Thank you, NAHRO members! We’ve reached our ambitious goal of sending 1,500 letters to Congress during the month of August.
Each week, NAHRO asked its members to send one letter per week to their legislators on a different topic that is critical to housing and community and development. NAHRO members responded, sending over 1,500 letters to Capitol Hill during the month of August and reaching our goal. This is a 50 percent increase over the August 2015 advocacy campaign.
This is a huge accomplishment and NAHRO thanks everyone who took the time to send letters each week and urge their colleagues to do the same. Our voices have been heard on Capitol Hill heading into an important September session prior to the election.
The most popular letter was a thank you to lawmakers for approving the Housing Opportunity Through Modernization Act (HOTMA, H.R. 3700). NAHRO thanks its members and stakeholders for praising Congress for a job well done and ensuring the loudest message from its advocates this summer was “thank you.”
Both the “thank you” alert and one focused on the upcoming fiscal year and small housing agencies are still available on NAHRO’s Advocacy Action Center. If you missed any of these alerts, please take the time to send them now!
Thank you again for helping NAHRO reach its goal!
