Join the NAHMA “March Meeting Hill Visit Challenge” to advocate for affordable housing in Congress!
While in D.C. NAHMA’s winter conference (March 3-5, 2019), make sure your voice gets heard on affordable housing issues important to you. Following the NAHMA meeting, head to Capitol Hill on Tuesday afternoon to visit with your lawmakers or their staff and tell them why full funding for affordable housing programs is critical.
Let NAHMA make sure your name gets in the appointment book.
- NAHMA can help you decide which offices to meet with
- Please let NAHMA know if you need assistance scheduling Hill Visits by Feb. 8, 2019
- Please also let us know if you would like meeting talking points and other Hill Visit prep
- If you have missed the scheduling deadline, please still reach out to us to discuss other options for participating in the Challenge
