Take action now.

Dear Friend,

Subzero temperatures, dangerous wind chills, and snow covering most of the country. This has been a winter for the record books! Imagine facing a winter like this in a home with inadequate insulation, a leaky roof or drafty windows.

That's the reality for more than 30 million low-income families here in America whose energy bills are soaring with the recent cold temperatures. Tragically, they’re being forced to make impossible choices about whether to heat their homes, pay rent or mortgage, or buy essentials like food and medications. These families would greatly benefit from weatherization programs that allow Habitat to serve low-income families in need, just as Habitat can help other families by building energy-efficient homes.

Here's the exciting news. Congress has an opportunity to help in a BIG way by passing the Weatherization Enhancement, and Local Energy Efficiency Investment and Accountability Act (S. 1213). Tell Congress to help Habitat keep helping families stay warm and reduce energy costs by passing this bill.

This bill will give Habitat the tools to provide families with permanent energy savings, making housing affordable by allowing them to meet other critical needs. No one should have to choose between staying warm and other basic life necessities. Help today by lending your voice to this important cause.

Habitat on the Hill is taking place February 11-13 in Washington, DC, with hundreds of Habitat advocates meeting with over 300 members of Congress on Wednesday, February 22. You can greatly amplify their call for affordable housing by acting as a state resident!

Join Habitat's efforts to get this bill passed and send a letter to your U.S. Senators. Simply fill out this form and then share with friends and family to join you in advocating for affordable housing.

Thank you for your continued support.
