Dear Habitat Ambassadors:
Please take a minute to email Senators Murphy and Blumenthal urging them to support nonprofits and housing stability. With the House recently passing its proposal for the next COVID-19 relief bill, the process has moved to the Senate to respond. As senators begin forming their priorities, NOW is the time for them to hear from us to ensure our recommendations are included in any Senate proposal.
One way we can do that is by garnering strong bipartisan support over the next few weeks for Senate bills related to our priorities. We want senators to co-sponsor two key bills — the Housing Assistance Fund Act and the Work Opportunities and Resources to Keep Nonprofit Organizations Well (WORK NOW) Act.
The Housing Assistance Fund Act would provide $75 billion to boost foreclosure and eviction prevention efforts in all 50 states. A similar version of the bill was included in the House proposal for the next relief package (the HEROES Act). This policy is also directly aligned with the goals of the Cost of Home campaign.
The WORK NOW Act would provide $50 billion for the nonprofit sector to scale much-needed services and help unemployed individuals get back to work.
It is our hope that with significant support for these bills, they will be included in the Senate priorities and ultimately a part of the final relief bill passed by both chambers.

Habitat for Humanity of North Central Connecticut was recently named as one of the Best Places to Work in Connecticut. This survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize, and honor the best employers in Connecticut, benefiting the state’s economy, workforce, and businesses. HFHNCC (formally Hartford Habitat) has been named one of this year’s Best Places to Work in Connecticut for the eighth year.
Companies from across the state entered the two-part survey process to determine the Best Places to Work in Connecticut. The first part consisted of evaluating each company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Connecticut, analyzed the data, and determined the final rankings.
This is quite an accomplishment for our affiliate because we have 19 employees. HFHNCC has become the “go to provider” for employee engagement so this acknowledgement reflects our commitment to our employees as well as our sponsors.
