Ask the Executive Appropriations Committee to prioritize funding for affordable housing – at last!
Last year state legislators finally passed policy to encourage the development of affordable housing to address Utah’s 54,000 unit housing shortage. However, they failed to provide any funding for the measure. This year, Sen. Jake Anderegg (R-Lehi) is running an important bill (SB 39 Affordable Housing Amendments) that would provide much needed funding to help address the growing housing problem in our state. But as tax reform unravelled this week, legislators indicate that the possibility of providing appropriations for housing is once again up in the air.
The Social Services Appropriations Subcommittee has prioritized funding for this bill. It is now up to the Executive Appropriations Committee to provide the funding needed to make necessary investments in affordable housing – and they will make their decisions by the end of the day on Friday.
