With the beginning of the new 2019-2020 state legislative session in January, CHAPA announced its legislative agenda. CHAPA's priorities include bills that will help increase access to affordable housing, protect fair housing, strengthen tenant protections to reduce displacement, and build stronger communities throughout the Commonwealth.

CHAPA thanks all the legislators who sponsored or co-sponsored our priorities. We look forward to working with the Legislature this session to move forward these policies that will help everyone in the Commonwealth have a safe, healthy, and affordable place to call home.
As the next step in the legislative process, the bills will be assigned to committees. The committees will have the opportunity to work on the legislation and schedule hearings later in the year.
