Advocacy Action: State Budget


Dear HFF Partner:

As you likely know, the Legislative Conference Committee has submitted their final FY2012 budget recommendations to Governor Patrick, whose administration is now reviewing and will soon present a version of the budget with vetoes.

Please take a moment to contact the governor’s office [(617) 725-4005 or (888) 870-7770 and simply request the following:

DO NOT VETO CRITICAL HOUSING AND HOMELESSNESS PROGRAMS AND SUPPORTS FOR LOW INCOME CHILDREN, INCLUDING THE $40 CLOTHING ALLOWANCE, WHICH SHOULD BE RESTORED TO $150 PER CHILD.

Thank you again for your efforts in advocating for the protection of homeless and at-risk children.  We will continue to keep you posted on budget and program developments as they are made available.
