IREM is in D.C. for Advocacy Impact Day!

Over 90 members registered for our Advocacy Impact Day event on March 28-29! Attendees will hear from a number of dynamic speakers during our orientation on the afternoon of the 28th. The next day, members will go to the Hill and meet with their federal legislators to discuss important issues affecting the property management industry, such as:

Choice in Affordable Housing Act (S.32)
The Choice in Affordable Housing Act would provide $500 million to create a Housing Partnership Fund. The funds would be distributed for Public Housing Agencies (PHAs) to offer a signing bonus to a landlord with a unit in an area with less than 20% poverty; and to provide security deposit assistance, so that tenants can better afford to meet required deposits and landlords are assured greater protection against damages.

Respect State Housing Laws Act (H.R.802)
The Respect State Housing Laws Act would eliminate a provision in the CARES Act which requires landlords to provide tenants with 30 days’ notice before a landlord can begin an eviction proceeding.

Advocate for the Industry

If you were unable to attend our event in D.C., you still have the opportunity to advocate for your profession! By using our find officials feature, you can identify your federal, state, and even local representatives. All you must do is input your name, email, address (home) and zip code.

Once you have identified your officials, you can inform them about IREM’s Advocacy Impact Day and share with them the leave behind materials we provided to legislators.

IREM’s bill tracking

Our objective is to empower our members, which is why IREM has the latest software to track federal and state legislative proposals. Please check out the list of bills we are currently tracking during the 2023 legislative season.
