Habitat on the Hill
Members of Habitat for Humanity of Washington State traveled to Washington D.C. in early February to meet with members of Congress to discuss issues that affect Washington affiliates including access to SHOP funding (Self Help Homeownership Program), AmeriCorps funding, and US Aid for clean water, sanitation and hygiene. Pictured here are delegates from the Seattle, Spokane, Tacoma and Vancouver affiliates with Senator Maria Cantwell.
Habitat in Olympia
Last week Washington Habitat for Humanity Affiliates met with legislators in Olympia. They discussed housing issues and Bill SB 5655 that will allow allocation from the Housing Trust Fund for home ownership programs such as Habitat. Thank you to Staff, Volunteers, Board Members, Senators and Representatives that came out!
