CHAPA Legislative Housing Day at the State House

Posted: January 30, 2014

Yesterday Amy Schectman, along with other CHAPA board members, attended a Legislative Housing Information Day. The event was designed to seek commitments from state legislators to prioritze affordable housing in the FY 2015 state budget. Amy had the opportunity to talk with the Newton state representatives Ruth Balser and Kay Khan, as well as State Representative Kevin Honan, whose district includes Brighton, and State Senator Jamie Eldridge who co-chair the Joint Committee on Housing. Amy delivered a clear message: affordable senior housing is by far the most efficient and effective platform for service delivery, which translates into signigicant Medicaid savings for the Commonwealth.
