Support RAD in FY 2017 Appropriations Bill
- With the short-term Continuing Resolution (CR) to December 9 now extended to April 28, 2017 to give the new Administration time to shape the budget for the balance of FY 2017, it continues to be important to directly contact and urge your Senators and Representatives to adopt the Senate's proposals for RAD in the eventual FY 2017 appropriations bill NOW so that RAD's importance in preserving public and affordable housing is clearly heard.
- Thank you to the 155 organizations that signed on to the RAD FY 2017 letter to Congress as of 10/31/16. The letter was conveyed to the chairmen/chairwomen and ranking members of the THUD Appropriations Subcommittees in both the House and Senate on 10/31 (see link to these letters, below). The sign-on letter will be held open and an updated version sent to Congress early in the new year
