Ask Congress for Increased Housing Investments in Fiscal Year 2023

State and local governments and the communities they serve rely on federal resources to meet the housing, homelessness, and community development needs of their communities. However, Congress has underfunded these resources for decades.

Contact your members of Congress and urge them to:

  1. Provide $32.1 billion to renew all existing Housing Choice Voucher Contracts and expand vouchers to at least 200,000 more low-income households;
  2. Allocate $5.125 billion for the Public Housing Capital Fund and $5.06 billion for the Public Housing Operating Fund;
  3. Help end homelessness through an investment of at least $3.6 billion in HUD's Homeless Assistance Grant programs;
  4. Prevent evictions through an investment of at least $100 million for legal aid services; and
  5. Address the severe housing needs in tribal nations by funding the competitive tribal housing block grant program at $300 million and target it to communities with the greatest needs.
