Thank You for Telling Your Planning Story

In our best-attended Planners' Day on Capitol Hill ever, planning advocates met with congressional leaders and staff from more than 120 Senate and House offices in fall 2017, requesting these key congressional actions:

  • Continuation of support for federal place-based programs that promote good planning
  • Adequate and responsible funding levels for transportation and housing appropriations in the upcoming fiscal year
  • Co-sponsorship of Safe Communities Act (H.R. 3804)

Members across the country joined in on social media and through emails to Congress.
