Welcome Message

 

Congresswoman Nydia M. VelázquezThank you for visiting my website. Here you will find useful details about my work on behalf of the residents of New York’s 7th Congressional District, my priorities and legislative activities in the House of Representatives, and the services offered to constituents.

The 7th Congressional District of New York includes parts of Brooklyn, Queens and Manhattan. If you are unsure if you live within my District’s boundaries, click here.

I have sponsored and co-sponsored a variety of legislation on issues involving small business, affordable housing, economic development, education, environmental justice, health care, and crime prevention. Find out more about my work on these and other important issues or read my recent press releases.

As Ranking Member of the House Small Business Committee, I work closely with the Small Business Administration (SBA) to make sure America’s entrepreneurs and small firms have the assistance they need. And as a senior Democrat on the House Financial Services Committee, my focus is on initiatives to expand financial services to historically underserved communities while improving the capabilities of banks and other financial institutions.

In addition, my office provides a number of constituent services. We can help your organization access federal dollars through my federal grants program, provide casework assistance to help you navigate the federal government, and assist you in getting tickets for a tour of the White House and the U.S. Capitol when you visit Washington, DC. For information on all of the services offered to the District’s residents by my office, please visit my constituent services page.

I hope you enjoy this site and that you find its content helpful! As always, you can contact me in Washington, DC or at any of my three district offices in New York City.

Sincerely,

Nydia Velázquez signature
