Reminder – Urge Your Senator to Get to YES on Housing Finance Reform Bill

    

Take Action

SUPPORT THE NATIONAL HOUSING TRUST FUND

Sign on to a Letter Urging Senate Banking Committee Members
to Work Together on Johnson-Crapo Bill

If you have not yet signed your organization on to the letter urging your Senator to work towards support of the Johnson-Crapo housing finance reform bill, please do so now. If you have already signed, please urge other organizations in your network to do so as well.

The mark-up of the Johnson-Crapo housing finance reform bill, originally scheduled for April 29, has been postponed until next week. Several members of the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs have not yet agreed to support the bill. Their support is crucial to the future of the bill, and to the future of the National Housing Trust Fund.

BACKGROUND

Senators Reed, Schumer, Menendez, Brown, Merkley, and Warren are all ardent supporters of the NHTF. They are pleased with the treatment of the NHTF in the Johnson-Crapo bill, but have a variety of other concerns that have not yet been resolved to their satisfaction.

Please sign your organization on to a letter urging these six Senators to work together to resolve concerns so that the bill has the support it needs to move forward to a vote on the Senate floor this year. It is crucial that these six Senators find a way to support the bill. This moment is too important to let slip by. Tell your Senator to stay at the table!

  • Then, call your Senator’s housing staffer and urge them to keep working on the bill. Remind them how crucial this moment is for the future of rental housing for extremely low income people around the country.

 TIMELINE FOR ACTION

Senators will continue negotiations on the bill through the weekend. Please sign your organization on to the letter and call your Senator TODAY. We will send the letter to Capitol Hill by close of business today.
