Sample Resolution for Businesses & Organizations


Encourage Your Local Government to Take Action

Local governments can make way for housing solutions by changing zoning laws, providing tax incentives, and working proactively with development partners. But they need to hear from citizens in order to move forward. To get engaged, you can attend community meetings to make sure your voice is heard, or work

directly with local officials or staff. You can contact your local housing network for assistance in communicating with your local officials, and stay in the loop on current proposals by signing up for updates.
