Advocate for Habitat!
Advocacy for Habitat for Humanity Seattle-King County and on behalf of affordable housing in Washington stateThe Washington Legislature is considering two items that are very important to the issue of affordable housing in our state. However, one of them – Senate Bill 5655 – could die this week if it is not scheduled for a hearing in the Senate Ways and Means Committee. The bill would specifically allow organizations such as Habitat for Humanity – organizations that provide home-ownership opportunities for low-income people — to be considered for an allocation from the state Housing Trust Fund. Please contact your state senator as soon as possible and ask that Senate Bill 5655 be scheduled for a hearing.
The second piece of legislation is a proposal in the state capital budget to allocate $100 million to the Housing Trust Fund, which was established in the late 1980s and is administered by the state Department of Commerce.
