This week, learn more about the Issue 3 Affordable Housing Charter Amendment on the primary ballot May 4. Save the date for upcoming CUFA events, and get an appointment for vaccination if you are still looking for one.
Here are the top 3 actions you can take this week:
CUFA supports Issue 3 for affordable housing. See the announcement and learn more here. The amendment would require a $50 million per year investment in the City of Cincinnati's Affordable Housing Trust, representing less than 5% of the City's budgets.
