About Housing Action New Hampshire
Housing Action NH is a coalition of organizations and individual members united around a common vision that everyone benefits when all Granite Staters have a safe, decent, affordable place to call home.
Powered by its statewide member network, Housing Action NH fosters and coordinates alliances to advocate for strong public investments and policies that preserve and increase the supply of housing that is affordable to NH’s low income residents. We prioritize and engage our members to act on state and national housing policies to improve the local housing landscape and to end homelessness in New Hampshire.
SB146 diminishes barriers for homeowners seeking affordable housing options on their property through an attached ADU. If passed, it will help create critically needed housing, especially for:
– Seniors on fixed incomes or with health conditions
– People with disabilities
– Young professionals
Contact your NH state rep before the vote tomorrow, Wednesday, 1/6/16 to support the Committee recommendation of Ought to Pass as Amended. See our Action Alert for more info.
Housing advocates are gearing up for the new state legislative session and a potential major advancement if the House affirms the committee recommendation on the formerly retained accessory dwelling units bill, SB 146. At the federal level, Congress passed and the President signed an omnibus spending bill and tax extenders package that includes several victories.
