CONTACT YOUR LEGISLATORS

Housing North works to identify and influence policy that impacts development opportunities in rural Michigan, but, to continue to communicate the importance of housing, your legislators need to hear from you and your support of our initiatives, your concerns and why this is important for all of us. 

Legislators appreciate hearing from their constituents. Don't forget: they are elected to represent your views! Legislators act on behalf of their constituency. Even if your legislator does not currently support your position, contacting them and voicing your concerns is a good way to put your issue on their radar screen. Make sure your legislator knows what you think about Housing North's policy priorities.
