Sorenson recalled at the last housing meeting he asked about the federal appropriations for housing programs in the United States.  He asked whether a letter has gone out.

Larry Abel, HACSA, indicated that he sent letters to their congressional delegation urging them to support affordable housing.  He noted there is a continuing resolution through December 18.  He said the prognosis is they will probably extend it through September 30.  He said their funding will be the same as last fiscal year.

Sorenson asked that after December 18 Abel send an e-mail to let them know if Congress extended funding for federal housing agencies.
