Supportive Housing Legislative Update

Last week the House Ways and Means Chairman Dempsey recommended that CHAPA’s supportive housing legislation be reported favorably from the Committee and the Chairman is currently polling committee members to request their support.  The bill is expected to advance from House Ways and Means this week and could be acted on by the full House in the next week or two.


The two major components of the legislation are included in the Ways and Means draft: 1) A requirement for there to be an Interagency Action Plan among a host of state agencies to create a coordinated process to create permanent supportive housing and 2) a goal of 1,000 units of supportive housing within three years of the Interagency Agreement being signed.
