Urge Senators to Join Section 202 Support Letter
U.S. Senate offices have until April 3 to join a letter to the Chair and Ranking Member of the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Transportation, Department of
Housing and Urban Development (HUD), and related agencies for strong Section 202 Supportive Housing for the Elderly funding in FY24. LeadingAge is grateful to Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ) for his leadership of the letter.
“As you consider the Fiscal Year 2024 Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies appropriations bill, we urge you to support the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Section 202 and 811 programs for seniors and persons with disabilities. We respectfully request: full funding for contract renewals for the Section 202 Housing for the Elderly program and an additional $600 million for capital advances and operating subsidies for new 202 homes to keep up with existing and increasing need,” the letter says.
To join the letter, U.S. Senate offices should email email@example.com by COB April 3. Advocates can reach their U.S. Senator and ask them to join the letter through the U.S. Capitol switchboard, 202/224-3121.
