Day of Action to Keep Families Together on June 26

We’re calling on our network in Pennsylvania to respond to HUD’s proposal to force mixed-status immigrant families to separate or face eviction. More than 25,000 families, including more than 55,000 children who are U.S. citizens or have legal status, are at risk of being made homeless by HUD’s proposal.

Current law, regulation and practice already ensures that ineligible immigrants do not receive housing assistance, and by HUD’s own admission this proposal would provide no benefit to families on housing waiting lists.

In response to the rule, the National Low Income Housing Coalition (NLIHC) and the National Housing Law Project (NHLP) are calling for a Day of Action to Keep Families Together on June 26. Join advocates across the nation by submiting a unique comment now in order to delay implementation of the rule and provide time for litigation and legislation. Comments are due by July 9!

Comments should be personalized and unique or else they won’t count as separate comments. You can find a comment template and other resources, and submit your original comments directly to HUD at:
