In many neighborhoods and communities in our state, Section 4 funds are able to leverage private sector dollars to create jobs, to build housing, to support small businesses, and to strengthen communities. 1,094 state and local community development and housing organizations throughout the country expressed their support for Section 4 through the national sign on letter.
Now it’s time for Congress to hear from CDCs in their state. Senator Joe Donnelly (D-IN) is circulating a Dear Colleague letter for Section 4 and we hope that you contact your Senators to encourage them to sign on. The House Dear Colleague was a success with 99 signers, and with your help, we know the Senate letter can be compelling too.
