The Florida Housing Coalition and the members of the Sadowski Coalition rarely send out Calls to Action.
But we are now.
It is CRITICAL to the appropriation of the housing trust funds this year, that you, your colleagues, your friends and family, respond.
The vast majority of people who voted for Amendment 1 did not think it would hurt affordable housing. But the Senate President has made clear that affordable housing is going to feel the “pain” from the costs of Amendment 1.
Here’s the good news:
Senator Dean’s subcommittee addressing Amendment 1 has set up a website to take public input.
We have only from now until February 1. The Senate MUST hear from all of us that Amendment 1 should not hurt affordable housing.
It takes less than one minute to send your comment “Don’t Hurt Affordable Housing”.
If you want all the state and local housing trust funds to be used for housing this year, we urge you to do this simple but critically important thing. Click here. And then make sure that everyone you know has done the same thing.
If you have any questions, contact Jaimie Ross at email@example.com.
The Sadowski Housing Coalition is a nonpartisan collection of 30 diverse statewide organizations that initially came together in 1991 to obtain a dedicated revenue source for Florida’s affordable housing programs, now known as the Sadowski Act.
Facing today’s tough economic times, the Sadowski Housing Coalition urges the Florida Legislature to use Florida’s housing trust fund monies solely for housing and help create 24,950 jobs and $3.1 BILLION in positive economic impact in Florida.
The faster Florida’s housing market recovers, the faster Florida’s economy recovers. Housing dollars can put Florida’s out-of-work housing industry back to work repairing homes and improving the real estate market, and help reduce future state budget deficits.
