Update from GBIO: Voting on An Expanded Housing Campaign at the virtual November 10 Delegates Assembly
The Brookline GBIO Housing Action Team has been quite successful, as have other housing actions, so GBIO has presented an expanded campaign that would go statewide, with four parts:
1. State-wide budget emergency facing state-funded public housing: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1z2wyWYUXtuEDKIhDsxKtOmkSNXQfV5uYw2JB...
2. Affordable housing & homeownership funding and the Real Estate Transfer Fee: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Nda4xdZ6dVTyUR0goT28c1wCemwUW25W/edit
3. Insufficient housing supply due to restrictive zoning and the MBTA Communities Act: https://www.mass.gov/info-details/multi-family-zoning-requirement-for-mb...
4. Access to housing for citizens returning from incarceration or mental health and recovery treatment.
This would be in addition to the ongoing Mental Health and Re-Entry action campaigns. We will vote on whether or not to move forward with this campaign on November 10 at the Delegates Assembly. If we vote to move forward, all GBIO member organizations will help with implementing the campaign. Email Carolyn M. at email@example.com with any questions or comments.
