Everyone deserves a stable, quality, affordable place to live
We need you to take action, right now! Just last week, the MN legislators announced $5 million in proposed cuts to the Challenge Fund. The Challenge Fund is the only way Habitat for Humanity receives budgetary support from the state for its work in affordable homeownership, and it is critical to the work done by TC Habitat and other organizations to ensure that all communities have safe, stable, and affordable housing.
The MN legislature should be taking up this issue this week. Let your representative know that you support the Challenge Fund and urge them to prevent these proposed cuts by sending them a letter to the right!
In addition to building and preserving safe, quality, and affordable homes, Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity invites Habitat supporters to be advocates for funding, policy, and systems change for the entire continuum of housing. While Twin Cities Habitat has an enormous and profound impact when partnering with families, the need for affordable housing is much bigger than we can solve with our programs alone.
