Tell (S) Housing Members, You Support SB 5741

This Tuesday, the House Local Government Committee will consider SB 5741, a bill that will create a "housing gap voucher pilot program." Tell legislators we can solve the housing crisis with common sense solutions.

 This bill:
  • Creates rental assistance vouchers through housing authorities for residents to bridge the gap between their income and their rent.
  • Makes available rental assistance for seniors, low-income families, and members of marginalized communities living in manufactured housing or rental housing in Washington.
  • Vouchers are targeted to 80% AMI and below, adjusted by family size and area.
  • Voucher is good for up to 12 months and allows residents in need to reapply.
  • Voucher amount is enough to bridge the gap but not paying all of the monthly rent.
Take action NOW!
