Diaz-Balart Receives 2016 Housing Champion Award from Florida Housing Coalition
WASHINGTON –Today, Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (FL-25) released the following statement after he received the 2016 Housing Champion Award from the Florida Housing Coalition at their 29th annual Affordable Housing Conference.
“There is no doubt that Florida is a desirable place to live, and affordable housing will always be in demand. I’m grateful to be in a position where I can advocate for and preserve housing programs at the federal level that serve so many Florida families. It is vital that Congress prioritize the most critical housing programs, while protecting hard earned taxpayer dollars. Thanks to the support from organizations like the Florida Housing Coalition, we can work together to provide for our community’s most vulnerable populations. The work does not end here, and as Chairman of the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development Appropriations Subcommittee, I will continue to fight for affordable housing for those who depend on it most, providing taxpayer dollars to the most efficient and effective programs.”
