Baltimore City residents voted overwhelmingly to create the Affordable Housing Trust Fund in 2016. Now we need to act to #FundtheTrust! With a steady funding source, the Trust will be able to provide resources so people can live in healthy, safe and affordable homes in sustainable and thriving communities. On April 16, the Public Justice Center will join other community leaders at a press conference to introduce the Fund the Trust Act. The legislation would create a dedicated funding stream for Baltimore’s Affordable Housing Trust Fund.

At the press conference, you’ll hear from the leaders of the 2016 ballot initiative for the Fund, representatives from community land trusts, residents impacted by housing instability, community development leaders, and City Council members, including lead sponsor John Bullock and co-sponsor Council President Jack Young. Join us at 4 pm to show your support for affordable housing.
