Support for Vet Homeownership: Call on Gov. Newsom to Sign SB 661

Veterans and Advocates,

We have an opportunity to grow homeownership opportunities for veterans. SB 661 (Newman) will modernize the CalVet Home Loan Program, making it easier for veterans to achieve the dream of homeownership. Since its inception, the CalVet Home Loan Program has helped nearly 425,000 veterans purchase their homes. But we can help it be even more successful by supporting SB 661. 

Nearly 300 letters were sent in support of SB 661 to date, and this important bill has successfully been passed by both the Senate and the Assembly. We’re down to our last push: will you take a few minutes to send a letter to Governor Newsom in support of SB 661 today

Despite the many changes in California’s housing market, CalVet’s Home Loan Program hasn’t been updated in 45 years. SB 661 modernizes this vital program by allowing veterans to refinance their CalVet loans with better interest rates, take out loans with shorter payback terms, and other quality of life updates. SB 661 will help veterans achieve or maintain homeownership – which is why the California State Commanders Veterans Council, American Legion, Dept. of CA, Disabled American Veterans, Dept. of CA, and a number of VSOs stand in strong support of this important legislation.

Please help us tell Governor Newsom that the veterans’ community strongly supports SB 661 and veteran homeownership! Use our simple, fast online letter-writing tool to send a letter in support today.  

Thank you for your support.
