Bond Provisions Letter Writing

Bond Provisions Letter Writing

Call to Action

CDFA has begun a targeted letter-writing campaign to ensure that MAMBA and Disaster-Area Recovery Bonds are included in the stimulus. We ask that industry stakeholders send letters to the House and Senate members to support CDFA's Modernizing Agricultural and Manufacturing Bonds Act and Disaster-Area Recovery Bonds. To make this process easier, we have created sample letters for your use.

Download the sample letter provided below and modify them to fit your letterhead. Email and fax letters to your representatives ASAP. Please also copy CDFA on any correspondence, and we will follow-up with the appropriate office holder.

When sending letters please follow these instructions:
  • Use this sample text to craft your letter.
  • Letters should be tailored to reflect your state/city and placed on your organization’s letterhead.
  • For full Congressional office contact information use the map below, or go to www.house.gov or www.senate.gov.
  • Letters should be faxed to your Congressional first.
  • Mail letters AFTER you fax them. They will take several days to reach the Capitol office.
  • For assistance with drafting your letters, do not hesitate to contact CDFA.
  • Send a copy of your letter to CDFA's Government and External Affairs Team.

Sign CDFA's Letter to Congress

To facilitate a speedy recovery, the Council of Development Finance Agencies (CDFA) and our joint coalition of partners is urging Congress to improve tax-exempt bonds.

By including a bond finance title in the next Stimulus Act, Congress would signal that bonds are a critical economic recovery tool, and allow for several common-sense changes to be passed related to the efficiency and effectiveness of tax-exempt bonds.

Completing this form adds your name to our coalition of partners, including non-profits, development agencies, bond issuers and cities and states throughout the country supporting efforts to improve tax-exempt bonds.
