NMHC/NAA joined The Census Project in sending a letter to the Senate Appropriations Committee on June 4 regarding the mark up of the Fiscal Year (FY) 2019 Commerce, Justice, Science (CJS) appropriations bill. The information the Census provides is paramount to the success of the multifamily industry. Census data is used for numerous purposes throughout the industry, including estimating the economic impact of the multifamily sector and providing the most current and relevant data.
The letter expresses support for the funding of the U.S. Census Bureau and, more specifically, requests that the Senate Appropriations Committee match the funding level that the House Appropriations Committee recently approved. NMHC/NAA are committed to ensuring the accuracy and fairness of the Census and will continue to advocate for this important industry issue.
