On Monday, August 26, NHRC submitted to the Senate a national sign on letter of more than 300 national, state and local organizations calling on the Senate Appropriations Committee to increase funding of the Housing Counseling Assistance program to $60 million for Fiscal Year 2020.

The Housing Counseling Assistance Program for Fiscal Year 2018 was at $55 million and for Fiscal Year 2019 was at $50 million. This level of funding is not enough for counseling organizations to meet the unique, diverse and increasing needs of the American housing market and its consumers.

Our hope is to move the needle to engage thoughtful conversation on housing counseling ahead of the Senate returning to work next month.
