Each day, there are opportunities to advocate for emergency housing funding, increased resources for people who are living outside, and increased eviction protection and funding for the affordable homes our communities desperately need. Your elected officials need to hear from you – it really does inform how they make decisions, especially when they hear from many of us at once, or when they understand your personal hardship or experience and how their decisions could improve the situation. Find your local city and county representative’ss contact information below.
Federal Action: February 2021 – The National Low Income Housing Coalition calls on advocates to contact our representatives and let them know how important a strong national eviction moratorium and federal rent relief is for our communities. Use the contact form here.
