Say Yes to Invest in Affordable Homes in FY21Budget
With depressed wages and low building levels, Rhode Island has not had enough affordable homes to meet residents needs in a long time. With the state's economy facing tremendous shocks as a result of COVID-19 and thousands of Rhode Islanders at risk of losing their homes, now is not the time for the state to make any cuts to housing and homeless services. An affordable housing bond would provide a much needed economic stimulus and boost jobs and infrastructure development as we recover from the pandemic, and a dedicated funding stream is desperately needed to increase the supply of available homes. Take action today to let your state legislators know that we cannot afford cuts to housing and we should pass an affordable housing bond and dedicated funding stream in the FY21 state budget.
