Wednesday, February 26th - Day at the Capitol
Now is the time to take action and connect with your state lawmakers!
On February 26th, join us for Day at the Capitol and help educate lawmakers on how HRAs serve their constituents and strengthen communities within their district. Don’t worry if you have never done this before. Our format ensures that both the newcomer and the veteran has a productive day with lawmakers. Once you register, we will contact your lawmakers to make appointments.
This is a bonding year and there are indications that we may have one of the biggest investments EVER in Bonds for Housing! Join us and be a part of our statewide effort to ensure we invest in affordable housing across the state.
