Building on our successful 2017 campaign, CHACE will continue its efforts in 2018 with a focus on the Virginia congressional level elections and will be advocating for the protection and expansion of federal funding sources.
What and who is CHACE?
The Campaign for Housing and Civic Engagement is a statewide campaign to raise awareness of housing issues, launched in 2017 in coordination with the Housing Week of Action, a nationwide effort sponsored by Our Homes, Our Voices.
Which housing issues are the focus of CHACE 2018?
We surveyed housing advocates in all 11 Virginia congressional districts to help us select our three 2018 policy priorities.
- HUD Budget Items (Housing Choice Vouchers, Project Based Rental Assistance, Public housing, Community Development Block Grants, and HOME Investment Partnership funds.)
- Homelessness programs and funding
- Low Income Housing Tax Credit
How can I help CHACE advance housing issues in Virginia?
You can use our issue briefs, housing fact sheets, and messaging guides to begin a conversation with candidates and neighbors about why housing matters. If you or your organization wants to partner with CHACE, contact us here.
