Restore the State Housing Trust Fund Campaign

What is Wrong?

Hard working families, veterans, seniors, and people with disabilities should be able to pay for their home and still have enough left over to buy basics like groceries, gas, and child care.  Yet many face uncertainty in today's housing market. There are over 200,000 renters in Arizona who are housing cost burdened and risk joining the 28,000 Arizonans who are homeless on any given night.

What is the Solution?

The State Housing Trust Fund is the solution! For over 25 years, this investment strategy created jobs and homes where needed. Prior to state budget cuts, the State Housing Trust Fund acted as a magnet for private investment, leveraged over $350 million in federal dollars annually, and helped over 10,000 Arizonans each hear avoid homelessness, repair dilapidated homes, and become first time home buyers. It's time to Restore the Housing Trust Fund!
