EOHHS Announces Budget Hearings


Every year in the fall the creation of next year’s state budget begins with state agencies giving budget recommendations to the Governors office. This process includes public hearings in which state agencies ask the community for their opinion about how the state should spend taxpayer dollars.

The Executive Office of Health and Human Services have recently announced the dates and times for their public hearings which includes programs administered by DTA and DCF. These hearings will take place in Boston and Northampton. Homes for Families encourages you to attend these hearings to learn more about the budget creation process and/or provide testimony. You can either give testimony orally to the group or provide written testimony about any of the programs listed below. This can include the amount of funding these programs receive along with changes you would like to see made to the programs.
