Sequestration has returned in FY16 with a devastating impact on bills that fund housing and other basic needs. If Congress fails to repeal sequestration, Congress will pass final spending bills with severe cuts. The National Low Income Housing Coalition and MHP encourage your organization to sign a letter urging Congress to replace sequestration with a balanced approach to deficit reduction. Check out MHP's blog Sequestration Compliance Forces Drastic Cuts in Proposed 2016 HUD Budgetsand visit Caps Hurt Communities website for more details.
Every year, Minnesota Housing Partnership develops a legislative agenda that focuses on securing state resources and changing policy to facilitate the production of affordable housing. The agenda guides MHP's organizing and advocacy activities.
