We urge you to take a stand to save Florida’s affordable housing funding. The Florida Housing Coalition has issued a Call to Action:
“It is CRITICAL to the appropriation of the housing trust funds this year, that you, your colleagues, your friends and family, respond to this Call to Action.
The vast majority of people who voted for Amendment 1 did not think it would hurt affordable housing. But the Senate President has made clear that affordable housing is going to feel the “pain” from the costs of Amendment 1.
Here’s the good news:
Senator Dean’s subcommittee addressing Amendment 1 has set up a website to take public input.
We have only from now until February 1. The Senate MUST hear from all of us that Amendment 1 should not hurt affordable housing.
It takes less than one minute to send your comment “Don’t Hurt Affordable Housing.”
If you want all the state and local housing trust funds to be used for housing this year, we urge you to do this simple but critically important thing. Click here and then make sure that everyone you know has done the same thing.”
