In order for NRHC to continue to be successful, we need your support. That’s why NRHC is offering new members a one-year membership for $250, including subscriptions to our Budget Bulletin and Rural Housing Reporter publications.
We are in a period of unprecedented austerity in the federal budget. Both Congress and the White House have supported spending cuts that negatively impact rural communities. While both parties have neglected rural housing and community development programs, USDA has been especially unsupportive. Yet, despite these challenges, NRHC has successfully supported and expanded housing opportunities in rural America. Through a combination of old-fashioned shoe leather, action-oriented research, and strong advocacy from local housing and community development organizations, NRHC has fought off sequestration, lousy USDA budgets, and Congressional inaction to preserve—and, in some cases, increase—funding for rural housing and community development programs.
We encourage you to visit our website, check out some of our reports (like our most recent report on Rural America’s Rental Housing Crisis), and feel free to contact me (sarah AT rapoza DOT org) if you have any questions.
Thank you for your support!
