Action Alert:
Call & Email Appropriations Committee Members!

March 29, 2017

The Appropriations Committee is in a crucial time of debate and decision. We need your assistance in communicating our support and the vital importance of homelessness and housing programs to lawmakers.

We are reaching out to ask you to ACT NOW and CALL YOUR State Senators and Representatives who are on the Appropriations Committee and ask them to preserve and maintain resources to end homelessness in CT.

Please Call/Email Appropriations Committee Members THIS WEEK and use the following script:

  • Please maintain current resources to end homelessness in CT.  Our efforts are working! Our efforts are cost effective, save lives, and save funds in other parts of the budget.

    • Please Preserve the funding in the Housing/Homeless Line item in the Department of Housing- $74 Million

    • Please Preserve the funding in the Housing Supports and Services Line Item in the Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services- $23 Million

    • Please Preserve the DOH Youth Line Item- $2.3 Million

  • Our success depends on the funding and services that are currently in place.  If those current services are cut, we will lose ground, and our homeless population will grow.

  • Cutting these resources will have major repercussions across communities — including on our emergency services, hospitals, and first responders — especially at a time when Connecticut cannot afford extra costs.

  • Thank you for working so diligently on the issues of homelessness and housing! Please continue to fight for people experiencing homelessness.
