Help defend the Partnership for Sustainable Communities

The Partnership for Sustainable Communities helps towns and cities across America create jobs and build strong, durable regional economies. The Partnership's programs give Americans choices about how to get around, and will help keep this country economically competitive in the 21st century. Ask Congress to keep our economy moving in the right direction: voice your support for the Partnership today.

How to call your Senators

1. Call the U.S. Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121 and ask for the office of your Senator or Representative. The switchboard will connect you directly. Not sure who your members of Congress are? Click here to find your Senator or click here to find your Representative.

2. Once you are connected, use the script below to express your support. You can also download a fact sheet about the Partnership (PDF) for even more information.

Hi my name is [NAME] with [ORGANIZATION] and I am a constituent of Senator/Representative [NAME].

I am calling to express my support for the Partnership for Sustainable Communities, a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the Department of Housing and Urban Development, and the Department of Transportation.

As Congress continues to debate the Fiscal Year 2012 Transportation, Housing and Urban Development appropriations bill, please support continued funding for the sustainable communities programs at both HUD and DOT.

I urge you protect the Partnership in the Fiscal Year 2012 budget. This program works to draw significant private investment and stretch government dollars while providing real and immediate benefits to communities like mine. As local communities across America struggle to rebuild their economies and meet growing needs, the Partnership works to break down barriers and offer communities the choices they need to remain fiscally competitive.

Again, I ask that you support funding for the Partnership for Sustainable Communities in the FY12 budget.

Thank you!
