Petition to Expand and Protect Affordable Senior Housing

Today LeadingAge launched a petition to expand and protect affordable senior housing. This petition is part of our effort to engage and grow the Seniors Action Network. Members are encouraged to sign the petition that tells Congress we must invest more in affordable senior housing and reject the President’s proposed 22 percent cut to next year’s U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) budget. Sign the Seniors Action Network Petition for Affordable Senior Housing and tell Congress to make older adults a priority.
