Arizona Multihousing Association seeks assistance in getting tenants to petition AZ Legislature to Approve Immediate Emergency Funding for Eviction Prevention
Resident Call to Action: Urge AZ Legislature to Approve Immediate Emergency Funding for Eviction Prevention
On Monday, March 23, the Arizona State House of Representatives will consider a budget bill to support Arizona’s most vulnerable by approving a $50 Million-dollar appropriation for housing assistance, including payments to prevent eviction or foreclosure as well as other important COVID-19 related economic assistance.
Please contact your State Representative between now and Monday at 10:00am by phone or e-mail. Ask them to protect Arizona’s renters by approving SB1690 and the $50 million for housing assistance and other COVID-19 economic assistance.
Tell your personal story (i.e. I worked at ABC restaurant and we closed this week).
Arizona unemployment may balloon to 300,000 claims within the next few weeks because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Immediate assistance is necessary, as we don’t have time to wait for the proposed federal stimulus which is 4-6 weeks away.
Contact your two Arizona Legislative Representatives (not all 60) and let them know you live in their legislative district, include your home address.
Over 37% of Arizona residents rent their homes.
