Here is a letter about the housing crisis.
The Housing Trust Fund is Washington's largest and most effective tool for providing affordable homes for both working families and vulnerable individuals across the state. It has also produced thousands of jobs and millions of dollars in tax revenue.
In her budget proposal for the next biennium, Governor Gregoire proposed funding the Housing Trust Fund at $40.8 million. On Monday, the House released its Capital Budget, allocating $60 million for the Housing Trust Fund.
Many of you have already taken action in support of the Housing Trust Fund this year, but now that the House budget proposal for the next biennium has been released, it’s time for us to again call on our legislators to remember that the Housing Trust Fund not only helps the most vulnerable, but helps create jobs and generates tax revenue.
