The Trump-Carson housing budget proposes steep cuts to affordable housing programs vital to our communities. In the Bay Area alone, estimates show that 5,750 residents and families will be at risk of becoming homeless due to these cuts.
Help us collect signatures from around the Bay Area to represent the devastating impacts this proposal would have on our communities and neighbors.
We will deliver the letter, signatures, and comments in-person to House Minority Leader Pelosi’s office during the National Week of Action for Housing (July 22-29.)
Add your signature and personal comments to the letter to urge Congresswoman Pelosi to fight back against the Trump-Carson budget and support Bay Area affordable housing.
We believe all Americans should have access to a safe, affordable home. Join us in supporting affordable housing by adding your voice now.
Dear House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi,
HUD and USDA affordable housing programs have lifted millions of families out of poverty. Without this investment, many of these families would be homeless, living in unsafe or overcrowded conditions, or struggling to meet other basic needs.
Yet, the Trump-Carson HUD budget seeks to slash affordable housing funding. The current proposal cuts nearly $7 billion from HUD, eliminating vital programs including the National Housing Trust Fund, Community Development Block Grant, and other important programs for our communities.
According to the National Low Income Housing Coalition, it would cause more than 250,000 families to lose their housing vouchers. Here in the Bay Area, estimates show that 5,750 residents and families will be at risk of becoming homeless due to these cuts. This is unacceptable.
We encourage you to view the long list of names signed on to this petition: Thousands of Bay Area residents have signed here, representing the thousands of Bay Area individuals and families that could lose their homes.
Don’t let this happen. We believe that everyone deserves access to a safe, affordable home. We need your leadership now to speak up on this important issue and fight back against these cuts. No one should be forced to give up food and basic healthcare to keep a roof over their head.
When we invest in affordable homes, we invest in people, our communities, and America as a whole. As leader of the Bay Area and California delegations, residents of the nine counties count on you to defend our communities and protect affordable housing. As House Minority Leader for our nation, we count on you to fight back against these cuts and stand up for this important issue.
Thank you for signing our petition urging Congresswoman Pelosi to fight back against the Trump-Carson housing cuts and support affordable housing! We’ll deliver these signatures during the National Week of Action for Housing to Congresswoman Pelosi’s San Francisco office, and will share photos and details from the meeting.
