Prevent Homelessness--You can help!

Please be responsive to save Rental Assistance.

Contact all. Act Now!

A House committee failed to act on the Rental Assistance Bill (HB 289), leaving it stalled but not defeated. The Senate passed the Rental Assistance bill (SB 761) unanimously on February 12th, and "communicated" it back to the House. Once again before the House, the bill now returns to the same sub-committee that previously failed to act: the Economic Development Sub-Committee of House Appropriations.

What can you do?

Contact members of the House Economic Development Sub-Committee and urge them to support the Rental Assistance Bill.
