Last Chance!

The legislative session is wrapping up but you can still connect with your local leaders on housing! Take a minute to call, text, or email your legislator. Tell them:

  • Thank them for additional funding for the Workforce Housing Tax Credit and ask them to fund it fully, in line with the Governor’s proposed $50 million.
  • Thank your Senator for raising the cap to $5.5 million on the State Housing Trust Fund. Encourage the Senate to fully remove the cap on the real estate transfer tax to give additional money to the State Housing Trust Fund, as proposed in House and Governor’s bills.
  • Ask them to take a closer look at the state housing tax credit program as a way to leverage under/unused federal funds (and keep those dollars here!)

Please remember to always keep public health and COVID-19 safety in mind. Here is a list of upcoming forums:
