Sample letter to Senators: On housing

Sample letter to Senators: On housing, I support: An amendment by Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) to prevent HUD from moving forward with its cruel proposal to force mixed-status immigrant families to separate or face eviction and, in worst cases, homelessness;
Any amendment to prevent HUD from eliminating anti-discrimination protections for transgender people experiencing homelessness and seeking shelter;
Amendment #1021 offered by Senators Tim Scott (R-SC) and Robert Menendez (D-NJ) that would require carbon monoxide alarms in certain federally assisted housing;
Amendment #1023 offered by Senators Tina Smith (D-MN) and Patty Murray (D-WA) that would allow owners of properties financed through USDA Section 514 and 515 loans to extend affordability provisions an additional 20 years;
Amendment #1142 offered by Senators Smith, Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH), and Jon Tester (D-MT) prioritizing maintenance of USDA rural housing properties through capital repairs, staffing provisions, and enforcement;
Amendment #1001 offered by Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR) to require HUD to transfer project-based rental assistance contracts upon termination to other housing providers;
Amendment #1006 offered by Senator Shaheen calling on Congress to create a tax incentive to encourage owners of manufactured home communities to transfer properties to nonprofit organizations and residents to help preserve affordable homes;
Amendment #1125 offered by Senator Menendez extending the availability of certain Community Development Block Grant – Disaster Recovery funds;
and Any amendment to increase investments in affordable housing for low-income households, without reducing other HUD funding.

As well, I oppose: Any amendment to reduce funding for HUD programs, including amendment #1019 offered by Senator Paul. Amendment #1076 offered by Senator Michael Enzi (R-WY) calling for an interagency review identifying fragmentation, duplication, and overlap among federal housing assistance programs and recommending methods to eliminate duplication. Thanks for your time.
