Don't eliminate funds for Habitat for Humanity

This petition had 1,721 supporters

Habitat for Humanity helps thousands of families, seniors and veterans each year to build or repair their homes. We work in over 1,400 communities throughout the U.S.  Federal funding helps us qualify and train homeowners, purchase property and prepare sites for construction.


The White House's "Skinny Budget" proposes to eliminate every federal program used by Habitat for Humanity. These cuts would devastate communities and thousands of families would lose the opportunity for better housing.


The “skinny budget” proposes eliminating CDBG (Community Development Block Grant Program); HOME (Home Investment Partnerships Program); SHOP (Self-Help Homeownership Opportunity Program); Section 4 Program; the CDFI fund, which administers the New Market Tax Credit program at Treasury, and the entire Corporation for National and Community Service agency, which implements the AmeriCorps program.

Eliminating or reducing funding for these housing programs would exacerbate local housing shortages and increase the burden of housing costs on families in need of housing stability.


There has never been a greater or more urgent threat to Habitat for Humanity's funding! 


Please help us by signing this petition asking Congress to restore funding that helps rural and urban communities throughout our country.
