Enable Dreamers to apply for deed-restricted homes!
The Town and County staff are considering updates to our Housing Regulations that would include making DACA recipients eligible to own Affordable Housing Department homes. They met on July 12 (check out the staff report here). There is now a 45-day comment period until September 6. Weigh in now and let your representatives know that DACA recipients should be eligible for our public housing programs: firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
If you’re not already a member, please join our movement. We suggest a donation of $20 per year; however, we want our membership to be as accessible as possible, so please pay what you can. Members receive access to special meetings, vote on the Board of Directors, and help set the vision and trajectory for the organization. If you are already a member, please ask your friends and neighbors to join as well!
As always, I am here to answer any questions. Thanks for your steadfast support of ShelterJH!
