April 1 is the National Day of Action for Housing, so we plan to make some noise in Tallahassee to protect Florida’s affordable housing dollars and fight laws that criminalize the homeless.
The goals are to stop Gov. Rick Scott’s proposal to steal from Florida’s most vulnerable citizens by taking 77 percent of housing trust fund monies and appropriate 100 percent of affordable housing trust fund monies for affordable housing, with an increased focus on the housing needs of extremely-low-income, homeless, and special needs households, and to end the criminalization of the unhoused by supporting the campaign for the Homeless Bill of Rights.
