Part of the legislative process is making funding decisions. This week, legislators on appropriations subcommittees will make recommendations to the Executive Appropriations Committee about which bills and projects to prioritize for funding. Affordable housing MUST be prioritized in 2020 to begin to combat the growing housing crisis!
Utah cannot afford to wait two years for funding the critical needs for our state!
SB 39 Affordable Housing Amendments by Sen. Jake Anderegg (R-Lehi) authorizes $15 million in ongoing rental assistance for Utah families on the brink of homelessness and provides $20 in one time funding for the Olene Walker Housing Loan Fund to develop more affordable housing. BOTH forms of funding are critically needed to staunch the growing housing gap and turn our state in a better direction!
YOU CAN HELP!
