campaigns in housing: There are current barriers to passing legislation - especially the economic climate.
And yet, building a network of advocates and supportive legislators around rental subsidies is critical to the long-run passage of state legislation. "Everything we’ve gotten since I’ve been in the state (1990 on) has been based on advocacy. It’s the only chance we have to get the rental subsidies we need to implement the plan to end homelessness."
