UPDATE: Baltimore City Fund the Trust Act

06.12.18

The Fund the Trust Act hit an unexpected speedbump on the road to providing sustained funding to the Affordable Housing Trust Fund. As a result, our lunch-and-learns this week are cancelled.

Lead sponsors of the bill continue to express support for funding the Trust, but won’t be pushing for a hearing on the bill until after the Task Force on Improving Baltimore City’s Housing Program meets and concludes its work. This is unlikely to happen before December, hence the cancellation of our lunch-and-learns this week.

That said, we’re working with our coalition partners to FUND THE TRUST and we’re building our capacity and networks to become stronger advocates for affordable housing in Baltimore City.

We will provide updates and opportunities for involvement in advocacy efforts periodically, but here are some things you can do right now:

With 180,000 Baltimore City residents voting favorably for the fund, it passed without a hitch. But without a sustainable funding stream, the fund itself sat empty for nearly two years.
