Canvass for the Affordable Housing Trust Fund
May 13 @ 10:30 am - 1:00 pm
The day will include a brief training on how to collect signatures for the ballot initiative, and then teams of two will go to Vine St, Findlay Market, and City Flea in Washington Park to talk to Cininnati voters about how we can fund more affordable housing in the city. Lunch will be provided. Can’t stay the whole time? No problem – show up when you can.
The ballot measure would restore our earned income tax to its 2020 levels in order to provide a dedicated funding stream to develop housing for the most vulnerable. While there is some promising affordable housing development happening in Cincinnati, very few of those units will serve those living <30% of the Area Median Income (<$18,150/person). The .3% increase will result in $40-50 million per year dedicated to those who need it most.
