Funding Needed to Continue the Fight For Fair Housing
In a letter dated April 1st, Congressman Al Green, a representative from Texas’ 9th congressional district, sent a letter to Congress asking for $45.6 million in funding for fair housing support. The letter states that FHIP is the only dedicated source of funding for education and enforcement of fair housing laws and powerfully demonstrates the work going on at all levels to secure and protect funding for our cause. The letter encouraged other members of Congress to support legislation that would continue FHIP.
Currently, there is a proposal to reduce FHIP by 50% which would be devastating to organizations such as FHCMD. To learn more contact the National Fair Housing Alliance at www.nfha.org
