Housing & homelessness

Housing will continue to be a key priority in my next term, and I know that  healthcare, jobs, and access to financial assistance are all part of a comprehensive housing program. Already, we have made some great strides that can be implemented by both my  Administration and community leaders over the next four years. To address the housing crisis, I will push to ban no-fault evictions and invest in building new, quality affordable housing. Recently, we obtained $6 million from the state to expand emergency shelter space by 50 percent.
