We are pleased to provide our Western MA legislators with our Legislative Priorities for this Legislative Session. Please click here to view.

The Network’s list of 9 priorities is of course a fraction of the housing-related legislation that has been filed that would make a very substantial impact on preventing and reducing homelessness. We have consulted with our statewide partners, including CHAPAMass Coalition for the Homeless and Mass. Law Reform Institute, and support so many more of their priorities and are encouraging our legislators to consider supporting their more expansive agendas as well.

For now, however, the bills outlined here offer the Network’s starting point for a legislative agenda that will create more permanent and stable housing for the people of Western Massachusetts and beyond.

The deadline for legislators to co-sponsor House bills is this Friday, Feb. 1 at 5 pm. Please contact your legislators (find contact info here), urging them to co-sponsor the bills outlined here.  

Thank you!
