Statement on NMHC/NAA signing letter calling for end to government shutdown


On January 18, the National Multifamily Housing Council (NMHC) and the National Apartment Association (NAA) joined over 200 organizations in signing on to a United States Chamber of Commerce coalition letter to President Trump and Congress calling for an end to the government shutdown.

This shutdown is having a very real impact on multifamily residents, communities and companies across the country. As the shutdown continues into its second month, the resulting challenges and unfortunate circumstances will only grow.

NMHC/NAA urge Congress and the Trump administration to work together to end the shutdown.
