Tell lawmakers to go big for affordable homes! Bills are moving this week in the legislature that would create a local fund source to complement the Housing Trust Fund and allow communities to meet their housing needs now.
Use this form to send a letter to your lawmakers in Olympia.
Note: We are waiting on some newly elected lawmakers to be added to our action alert system. If you notice that one of your lawmakers is missing, we encourage you to call the legislative hotline at 1-800-562-6000 (TTY for hearing impaired 1-800-635-9993) and leave the following message:
"I'm calling to encourage you to make deep investments into affordable homes this year. As part of the solution, I urge you to pass House bill 1406 and Senate bill 5646 to create a funding option that local communities can use to create affordable homes now."
Evictions are a leading cause of homelessness in Washington State, and many households are just one small emergency away from not being able to pay the rent. Tell your lawmakers they need to address this crisis by passing eviction reforms to keep people in their homes!
Legislators have an opportunity this year to address the affordable housing and homelessness crisis. Make sure they know our priorities!
