Join the make room campaign: Send A million messages to congress!

The Alliance has joined Make Room, a campaign to end the rental housing crisis in America, to send a million messages to Congress demanding attention and action on affordable housing issues by Election Day. Join us in this campaign!

Here’s what you can do:

1. Go to the Make Room Campaign website

2. Type in your zip code to find your Members of Congress

3. Tweet, email, or call your Members by following the links on the site and tailoring the template messages

  • Please include a specific message about the importance of funding McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Grants at least at $2.487 billion in the final FY 2017 HUD spending bill! See the templates below. You can also reference these talking points.
  • We also encourage you to add in local stories and data about the effective work of McKinney-funded programs in your community.

Email Template:

“The housing affordability crisis results in approximately 564,708 Americans experiencing homelessness on any given night. As a first step, please reach out to Appropriations leadership and ask them to include at least the House Committee’s $2.487 billion for Homeless Assistance in the final FY 2017 HUD spending bill. This level would allow communities to house 40,000 more homeless people than this year.”
