Proposed House Budget to Zero out SHIP
No money at all for FY 2018-19, other than funding for hurricane recovery, has been allocated. SHIP (State Housing Initiative Partnership) dollars help Habitat make mortgages more affordable. Supported by the Sadowski Housing Trust Fund, the Florida House proposes eliminating these dollars and continuing to diminish housing resources….leaving a smaller allocation for hurricane relief only.

Dear Representative ____________:

The residents of Broward County, including our workforce, our elderly and special needs populations, need affordable housing. Our employers and our economy need affordable housing. We thank our Senators for a budget that uses all the housing trust funds for housing; no sweeps.

We urge our House members to stop sweeping the housing trust fund monies and join the Senate in using all the housing funds for housing. Please help your constituents by speaking up in favor of using housing funds for housing – we are relying upon you.
