The Bush Administration is trying to underfund Section 8 housing–in their budget, they asked Congress for $2 billion less than what the program needs to keep operating!

WSNA and HCC are working with our local Congress Member, Jerry Nadler, and tenant groups from all over New York to restore the funding so that project-based Section 8 buildings in our city can continue to provide affordable housing to local tenants.

Hundreds of tenants from all over the city came together for a March 19th rally to protect Section 8 housing.
