ISAC Backfill Advocacy Materials

 

 

 

 

 

 

One of ISAC’s top priorities this legislative session is maintaining full funding of the backfill. We’ve created two short videos to explain what the backfill is and why it’s so important and also the role of the county in the property tax system. Links to each video and more advocacy information is below.

Reach out to your legislator and tell them why your community needs the backfill.
