Far too many of us can’t afford basics like rent, groceries, internet, or medical visits because special interests and their political allies at the Capitol are busy giving tax breaks to big corporations.
HOME + HEALTH
SAFE AND AFFORDABLE HOUSING
INTERNET ACCESS FOR ALL
Currently, 73% of low-income renters in Arizona are severely cost-burdened, putting them on the brink of eviction. Meanwhile, resources like the Housing Trust Fund have been gutted. Arizona should invest in the Housing Trust Fund and rental assistance programs to help more renters.
Too few Arizonans have access to reliable internet to learn and participate in today’s economy. Free state-wide access to the Internet and the expansion of broadband infrastructure must be a priority in today’s economy, especially in rural Arizona.
ACCESS TO FOOD
More than 1 in 10 Arizona families sometimes or often don’t have enough to eat. Meanwhile, state-administered safety net programs like SNAP and TANF are either too inaccessible or inadequate to meet household needs. Increasing assistance amounts for the basic essential of food must become a funding priority.
