Around the State

HB 1208: Funding for Workforce Housing Loan Program – Signed Into Law 6/19

Update: HB 1200  ($200 million towards mortgage, rental & utility assistance)

    • Bill is being stalled. General Assembly members in both chambers have decided to scale back the amount of CARES Act money that is rolled out right now. 
    • There is some talk about legislators waiting to see if federal government will allow states to use CARES money for filling budget gaps due to decreased revenue caused by the overall decline in economic activity
    • Right now does not look like the HB 1200 will be moving this week


  • Continuing the push for HB 1200


    • Please contact state senators:
      • In particular, Senate Republicans need to hear from constituents about the need for this assistance and how it impacts housing providers and their ability to meet their financial obligations. 
      • The list of Senators and their contact information can be found here. To figure out who your Senator is, you can find out on this site
