> > The organizations that comprise the Campaign for Housing and

> > organizations request that you support a FY2001 Department
> > of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) budget that allows us
> > to continue building communities and developing homes for

> >
> > The FY 2000 budget continued what we believe to be a
> > positive trend to meet the goal of affordable housing and
> > livable communities in this nation.
> >
> > However, we continue to be concerned that the progress made
> > falls far short of meeting the ever increasing need.  HUD's
> > 1998 worst case housing needs report shows that at least 5.3
> > million households pay more than half of their incomes for
> > rent and/or live in substandard homes.  The FY 2001 budget
> > should reflect a substantial down payment toward filling
> > this gap by, at a minimum, fully funding current programs
> > and significantly increasing the supply of affordable
> > housing.
> >
> > Even in strong economic times, many low income people do not
> > live in safe, decent and affordable homes.  Federal housing
> > resources are essential to this nation's efforts to reduce
> > these housing burdens and to address the community
> > development needs of underserved people in order to
> > successfully prevent homelessness, maintain self
> > sufficiency, help people climb out of poverty and support
> > strong families and healthy children.  Affordable housing
> > can be a platform of opportunity for achieving these
> > objectives.
> >
> > In FY 2001, as more and more people reach their welfare time
> > limits, each HUD dollar becomes even more vital to the
> > stability of very low income families who are trying to
> > improve their economic status without having their incomes
> > consumed by housing costs.  HUD dollars also make a critical
> > difference for poor elderly persons living on fixed incomes,
> > people with disabilities, especially those who rely on
> > Supplemental Security Income (SSI), and low income families
> > with children facing difficult choices between paying for
> > shelter, food or medicine.

> > Expanded HUD funding in FY 2001 can help to build healthy
> > communities and can also help to meet the growing needs of
> > the residents in this nation's communities.  We, therefore,
> > urge you to submit a budget that increases HUD funding to
