PPC Successfully Requests $1 Mil for Affordable Housing
During the 2015 legislative season, The Pioneer Park Coalition requested $1 million of the Governor’s budget to be allocated to permanent supportive housing efforts. The Governor’s budget passed through the legislature, making the Pioneer Park Coalition successful in securing $1 million to reshape the face of homelessness in the State of Utah. Funds were allocated to The Olene Walker Housing Trust Fund for supportive housing.
As the Pioneer Park Coalition continued their advocacy efforts to improve homeless services and address systemic issues in the Rio Grande neighborhood, the Salt Lake County formed a Collective Impact on Homelessness Steering Committee in January and invited the Pioneer Park Coalition to participate on the committee, giving them four chairs.
