Today we are sharing the word about HB 3180 with legislators. This bill, if passed, could create a Texas Data Sharing Network (DSN). The DSN will unify homeless crisis response systems throughout the state. The power of this network could bring so much good to our communities; it is our hope at THN to bring the DSN to life in Texas. Support our efforts by calling your legislator today and sharing this infographic with your networks! #had2019 #endhomelessness

Many veterans are on a wait list to use their vouchers on residences that need slight repairs in order to qualify for voucher compensation. SB 1019 offers funding to residences that only need slight repairs to meet federal standards for housing in which federal subsidies can be used. This funding could reduce community and offer housing to around 400 Texans experiencing homelessness. Please share this infographic and urge people to call their legislators today and ask them to support SB 1019. #had2019 #endhomelessness

Today at Homelessness Awareness Day we are speaking with legislators about SB 1116 and why we think it's crucial they support bringing this bill into law. Texas lacks deeply affordable options and we need solutions. This bill will increase tax credits for supportive housing resulting in evidence-based solutions for ending homelessness. This will spur investors to solve a Texan need, while being the most fiscally appropriate solution to funding supportive housing. Please call your legislators to urge them to support SB 1116 and share this infographic to spread the word. #had2019 #endhomelessness
