The Community Development Block Grant program turns 40 years old on August 22- celebrate CDBG with NAHRO by participating in a Twitter town hall and by asking your Representative to co-sponsor a resolution.
Take to Twitter on Wednesday, August 13th at 2:00 PM ET to show your support for CDBG using the hashtag #CelebrateCDBG. Retweet CDBG tweets from @NAHRONational, share your own CDBG stories, and tweet at your members of Congress to urge them to co-sponsor H. Res. 668. Visit NAHRO’s Congressional District Contacts page to find a list of Congressional Twitter handles to tweet directly at your legislators.
You can also honor the 40th anniversary of CDBG by asking your Representative to support H Res 668. Rep. Chaka Fattah (D-Pa.) and Rep. Michael Turner (R-Ohio) introduced the resolution last month celebrating the goals and ideals of CDBG. Visit NAHRO’s Advocacy Action Center to send a pre-written letter to your Representative asking that they join the resolution as a co-sponsor.
