Bipartisan Neighborhood Assistance Expansion Bill Introduced

21 May

Bipartisan Neighborhood Assistance Expansion Bill Gets Introduced, 49 Cosponsors to Date.  IS YOUR LEGISLATOR ON BOARD?

Representative Killion (R, Chester) has introduced House Bill 2241 which doubles the appropriation of the Neighborhood Assistance Act (known as NAP) to $36 million, creates a $10 million affordable housing trust fund, and provides resources to protect at-risk veterans.  Many PCRG members have benefited greatly from this program, and we are excited to join the Housing Alliance, ACTION-Housing, and the Philadelphia Association of Community Development Corporations in the effort to push this bill forward in this legislative session.  But, we need your help.

If you like NAP, please contact your representative today and ask him/her to support the expansion and modernization of the Neighborhood Assistance Act.  You can follow this link to make your voice heard.
As a community development expert, you know the value of the Neighborhood Assistance Act. This year’s budget is a particularly hard one, but with more support we could win the day for neighborhoods.  Please tell your Legislator, today, to cosponsor House Bill 2241.
