Providing access to healthy, stable and affordable housing and transportation options
2017-2018 Policy Priorities
Fair Share Constitutional Amendment to Fund Transportation
The Fair Share Constitutional Amendment would dedicate upwards of $1.5 billion annually to improve two social determinants of health: transportation and public education.
Housing Production Legislation
The Great Neighborhoods Campaign will reform our state’s planning, zoning, and permitting laws to support communities that work for families and seniors. Great neighborhoods make it possible for young families and seniors to stay in their communities by providing housing choices. They support thriving local businesses and are healthy, walkable places that preserve open space. Supporting great neighborhoods is vital for the long-term economic success of our communities and our state.
Family Homelessness Prevention and Services
As incidence of family homelessness continues to rise, ensuring secure and safe housing options for families is necessary. Policy reforms can help increase access to family shelter and child care for families without homes.
