This is a crucial time for national community development programs.
Today, committees in both the House and Senate are working on bills to fund the federal government for the rest of the fiscal year—including key programs at the Department of Transportation, Department of Housing and Urban Development and the Environmental Protection Agency. How much these programs receive in the coming year is currently under debate.
The bills will soon go to a vote, and so now is the time to speak out for these important programs.

Together we can help communities clean up brownfields, reuse already developed land, revitalize neighborhoods and expand transportation options.
The Partnership for Sustainable Communities’ planning grants, brownfields assessment and clean up assistance, and the innovative TIGER program are all critical to this work. These programs get more out of public investment and help communities build in ways that will support local economies for decades to come—but Congress needs to hear from you.
