About the Cut the Costs Campaign

Decades of restrictions, roadblocks, and regulatory red tape continue to add hidden costs to the price of homes in Washington.

At this point, roughly three-quarters of Washington households can’t afford the mortgage on a new home. Owning your own home not only gives you space, stability, and freedom; it sets you on a path to building generational wealth for you and your family. Now more than ever, Washington needs to cut the costs of land use and regulatory decisions so more people can afford a home. We want to empower you with the information you need to help get you closer to owning your piece of the American dream.
