Envisioning Equity Part II: Housing to Build a Just Recovery

 

Learn more about current legislation discussed in this conversation:

Guaranteed Housing Stability Act (H.5018) would ban evictions due to COVID-19-related nonpayment, stabilize rents, prevent “no fault” evictions, enable homeowners to defer their mortgage payments until the end of their loans, and establish a relief fund for small landlords.
An Act providing for climate change adaptation infrastructure and affordable housing investments in the Commonwealth (HD.5275/SD.3056) would double the deeds excise tax on home purchases and dedicate half the new revenue to climate mitigation and resiliency and half toward housing affordability.
