Ohio credit unions continue to serve as pillars in their community by supporting the people, families, businesses, and communities hit the hardest by the ongoing pandemic. Like your credit union, the League focuses on helping under-served communities that often lack access to affordable and safe financial services. To that end, we were proud to sign on to a letter supporting state investment in Ohio’s affordable housing supply.
The League, along with other trade associations and business leaders, recently teamed up with the Coalition on Homelessness and Housing in Ohio to urge legislative support for targeted community investment. The letter advocates for $390 million of State and Local Fiscal Recovery (SLFR) funding investment for multiple proposals to reduce homelessness, fund home repairs, address youth homelessness, and invest in the Beginnings at Home program for expectant mothers. This initiative follows state guidance that SLFR funding is used for one-time investments and not create new, unfunded programs. Click here to access the letter for full details about the proposal.
If you have any questions about the League’s efforts to promote affordable housing, please get in touch with Chief Advocacy Officer Emily Leite or Director of Legislative Affairs, Jared Weiser.
