Put your idea on the Homes for All legislative agenda! Policy proposal applications are now due on Thursday, October 26, 2017 by 5 p.m.

The legislative process can seem daunting and overwhelming. However, when community members, organizations, thought leaders and people with lived experiences convene around a table with a purpose of achieving equitable policies, great things transpire. Achieving great legislation does not happen in a year, and the recent talk about cuts circulating around our great state may have many advocates feeling unsure about our upcoming legislative session. 

DO NOT be deterred by such talk! The Homes for All proposal process is a great place to present your policy ideas, no matter how complete or preliminary it is.
