The Honorable Patrick Leahy Chair Senate Appropriations Committee
The Honorable Brian Schatz Chair Senate Subcommittee on Transportation, Housing, Development and Related Agencies
The Honorable Richard Shelby Vice Chair Senate Appropriations Committee
The Honorable Susan Collins Ranking Member Senate Subcommittee on Transportation, Housing, Development and Related Agencies
Dear Chairman Leahy, Ranking Member Shelby, Chairman Schatz, and Ranking Member Collins:
The undersigned organizations, which include a broad cross-section of stakeholders committed to enabling low-income families to live in affordable and decent quality housing in wellresourced neighborhoods that promote health and opportunity, urge your subcommittee to include in its appropriations bill for Fiscal Year (FY) 2022 funding levels as close as possible to the amounts the President requested for additional housing vouchers, the administrative costs of administering the Housing Choice Voucher program, and a Mobility Services program. At the least, the Senate bill should include the amounts for each of these purposes that the House bill (H.R. 4550) would make available.
