        A RESOLUTION honoring Habitat for Humanity.
    

    Whereas, Providing all Hoosiers with homes that have suitable living environments has long been recognized as a key to the advancement and development of Indiana;

    Whereas, According to the Indiana Housing Finance Authority's 2003 Indiana Consolidated Plan Update, one-third of Indiana renters are paying more than 30 percent of their household income on gross rent and are thus exceeding the affordability threshold;

    Whereas, Habitat for Humanity works in partnership with these families and their communities to build homes that are sold at cost and financed without interest;



    Whereas, Habitat for Humanity has constructed over 1,500 affordable homes for Hoosier families and continues to produce nearly 200 new homes each year;

    Whereas, Habitat for Humanity will be celebrating the opening of the 2005 building season with a week-long bicycle tour of Indiana and a May 14 celebration; and

    Whereas, This celebration honors the accomplishments of a large community of volunteers and donors who have worked tirelessly to improve housing conditions in Indiana: Therefore,

Be it resolved by the House of Representatives of the

General Assembly of the State of Indiana:


    SECTION 1. That the Indiana House of Representatives recognizes the value of the work performed by Habitat for Humanity and urges Governor Mitch Daniels to proclaim the week of May 8 through May 14 as Habitat for Humanity Week.
    SECTION 2. That the Principal Clerk of the House of Representatives transmit a copy of this resolution to Habitat for Humanity of Greater Indianapolis.
