The Governor has proposed reducing funding for Neighborhood and Rural Preservation Programs for the individual 2008-09 contracts by 25 percent of remaining payments. (2008-09 Savings: $2 million; 2009-10 Savings: $2 million) The legislature must agree to this, as they did in August when the program suffered its first cut. So this cut being considered is the second cut to existing contracts. Contact your legislator TODAY- ask them to STAND UP against the cuts when considered this week for passage! Ask them to contact their leaders and tell them NOT to agree to cut the essential affordable housing delivery network!
