Housing

Goal

Increase support for affordable and accessible housing, especially with service availability.  Many people remain in a facility long after they have recovered from an illness or injury because they cannot find suitable living accommodations.

Legislation

FY 2021 State Budget – the DAM approved $4.5 million funding increase for AHVP housing vouchers was signed by Governor Baker.

See the State Legislative Endorsements page for a list of all Dignity Alliance supported bills.
