|REQUEST FOR SIGNATURE(S)Support Housing for People Living with HIV/AIDS|
Sending Office: Honorable Jerrold NadlerSent By: email@example.com
Dear Colleague: We urge you to support the Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) program in the FY 2023 Transportation-HUD appropriations bill. Along with the HIV/AIDS community, including the National AIDS Housing Coalition, we ask for a funding level of $600 million, a $150 million increase over the FY22 funding level. Providing at least $600 million in FY2023 is necessary as the hold-harmless provisions that have protected jurisdictions from losing money under the new HOPWA formula have officially expired, resulting in massive funding cuts for critical housing programs across the United States. Now, the $450 million enacted FY2022 level is resulting in over $15 million in losses for programs that provide critical, life-sustaining housing and support for people living with HIV. The $600 million funding level ensures that no jurisdiction loses HOPWA funding, and no current residents lose access to supportive housing. If you have any questions, please contact Maddy Hanley (firstname.lastname@example.org) in Congressman Nadler’s office. If you would like to sign on, please fill out the Google Form here. Sincerely,
Rep. Jerrold Nadler Rep. Pramila Jayapal Rep. Terri A. Sewell Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
