CALL TO ACTION FOR AFFORDABLE HOUSING
As people of faith, we want to see more affordable housing in Virginia’s budget. There are two important pieces in the budget that could benefit thousands of families: a stronger investment in the Virginia Housing Trust Fund, and a work group laying groundwork for a long-term rental assistance program. Encourage your legislator to support these initiatives by signing the petition at www.tinyurl.com/va-housing.
