This week, lawmakers will be on legislative break starting April 13 with legislative activity beginning 8 am on April 22. This is a great opportunity to talk to lawmakers about affordable homes and the Homes for All legislative agenda!
How to connect? Send an email or make a phone call! Bring up affordable housing when you get a chance to talk to lawmakers. Many lawmakers host legislative town halls or attend community events during legislative break to reconnect with constituents in their districts.
What to say? Here is a recommended message, which you can use in person, or for emails or phone calls.
Hello, my name is <YOUR NAME> and I live in <CITY>.
Please keep affordable homes a priority this session! More than half a million Minnesota families pay more than they can afford for housing, and that number is growing.
Please ensure affordable housing is a priority for the omnibus tax bill, housing appropriations, and bonding. Please support the Homes for All agenda and the affordable #HousingTaxCredit, proven solutions we need now in Minnesota. Don't let this legislative session end without action on housing!
