Action to Restore RAFT Access
Great work! Earlier this week, the Mass. Coalition for the Homeless, Massachusetts Law Reform Institute (MLRI) and CHAPA delivered an organizational sign-on letter to the Legislature, Governor, and key Baker Administration officials to eliminate the notice to quit requirement in the Residential Assistance for Families in Transition homelessness prevention program. Thanks to your help, the letter was endorsed by 167 organizations and municipal officials from across the Commonwealth.
Individual signers still welcome! Please take a minute to sign the action to legislative leaders and your own State Representative and Senator by clicking here: https://mahomeless.org/raft-ntq-action/
