Invest in Affordable Homes

Invest in Affordable Homes

Everyone deserves the opportunity to live in a safe, healthy, affordable home. Yet thousands of individuals and families are experiencing homelessness across Washington, and the problem is getting worse; the 2015 Point in Time Count found a 13 percent increase in unsheltered homelessness statewide over the previous year. 

To end homelessness, we need more affordable homes. The state should invest in the Housing Trust Fund, our best tool for creating and maintaining affordable homes.

Demand WA State Senate Pass the Capital Budget to Invest in Affordable Homes

The Washington state capital budget is currently blocked in the Senate, putting the Housing Trust Fund in danger. The Housing Trust Fund is Washington's most effective method of buiding affordable housing and ending homelessness. The longer it goes unfunded, the more housing already in the pipeline will be delayed or cut.
