Sign NRHC’s Petition In Support of USDA Rural Housing Funding
For the 5th year in a row, the White House has used every excuse in the book to cut funding for USDA Rural Housing and Community Development programs, making it even more difficult for low-income families, the elderly, and persons with disabilities to access affordable housing and undercutting our nation’s struggling rural economies.
This year alone, the Administration proposes an additional $270 million in reductions. If enacted, the President’s budget would amount to a 57 percent cut in funding for Rural Housing and Community Development since 2010.
Please, Sign NRHC’s Rural Housing Petition TODAY and ask Congress to protect rural communities from cuts proposed in the President’s FY15 Budget Request. Ask them to fully fund these programs in FY15.
After you sign on, please send the petition to as many rural organizations and advocates as possible before the petition closes on Monday, April 14th.
