“Housing is absolutely essential to human flourishing. Without stable shelter, it all falls apart.”

Matthew Desmond

In Delaware the primary for Governor, State House of Representatives and State Senators will be September 10, 2024.  The general election will be on November 5, 2024.  Every candidate that officially registered to run has been contacted.  What follows are the candidates who chose to fill out our housing survey.  We will be adding new candidate's answers as they respond.  Please check back periodically.

The same questions were asked of each candidate:

     1. Name

     2. If elected, will you support legislation that designates a portion of Delaware's income to a fund for the production and                       preservation of affordable housing (defined as housing affordable for households with incomes at 80% of the Area Median                 Income or below)?

    3. If elected, will you support legislation that helps ensure that all of Delaware's

         municipalities have land use policies that allow for the development of affordable housing (e.g. inclusionary zoning)?

    4. If elected, will you support legislation that protects renters with housing vouchers from being discriminated against by                       requiring landlords/property owners to consider prospective tenants who have vouchers for their open units, equally                         alongside other tenants?

    5. If elected, will you support legislation that promotes tenant stability by ensuring that a landlord may only evict or non-renew           a tenant at the time of lease renewal if there is good cause (breach of lease, rent arrears, sale of property, etc.).

    6. If elected, will you support legislation that ensures that the rights of people experiencing homelessness to access public                  services, use public spaces, and not face discrimination in seeking housing or shelter?
