Advocating for housing

Capitol Hill Housing Foundation joined more than 650 advocates from around the state in Olympia on February 11 for Housing and Homelessness Advocacy Day. Participants attended workshops, rallied on the steps of the capitol, and met with legislators to share their stories.

Advocacy doesn’t stop after a visit to Olympia! There are a number of ways to stay involved throughout the legislative session to be sure our leaders know how important it is to support housing.

We encourage you to urge your elected officials to support $175 million for the Housing Trust Fund in this biennium’s Capital Budget. And at the Federal level, you can advocate for maintaining Low Income Housing Tax Credits, which are a key funding tool for affordable housing developments.

Learn more about how you can advocate for crucial housing policies through the Washington Low Income Housing Alliance.
