Take Action for Housing Affordability in Tukwila

Action Items for Tukwila Advocates:

Protect Affordable Housing in Your City from Federal Tax Reform

Proposed elimination of a key affordable housing development tool, Private Activity Bonds (PABs), would make it much harder for our region to meet its housing need at a time when there is more demand than ever.

In the last thirty years, PABs have helped build 24,000 affordable apartments in King County alone.

You can help by urging your Representatives to rise to our affordable housing need by protecting Private Activity Bonds. Sample letters from the ACTION Campaign:

Contact your representatives by phone by calling the Congressional Switchboard at (202) 224-3121
