Cully Housing Action Team: CHAT! The Cully Housing Action Team! (CHAT!) is a group of Cully neighborhood residents and allies, convened by Living Cully, that is advocating and organizing to solve housing issues facing low-income residents and people of color. Issues that CHAT! is concerned about include: rising rents, landlord intimidation of renters, lack of access to affordable homeownership, unhealthy and unsafe housing conditions, and the vulnerability of Cully residents to displacement as housing becomes more expensive.
