National Advocacy

CCEH serves as a catalyst for change and represents the interests of homeless persons and works to activate Connecticut advocates on a national level. We work with local communities, advocates and policy makers to move change at a local, state and federal level. CCEH provides stakeholders with information, tools and resources to create change to prevent and end homelessness and partners with national groups such as the National Alliance to End Homelessness to succeed.

Thanks again for your commitment to ending homelessness. Together we are making a difference!!

Federal Action Alert: Call and Email our Congressional Delegation Today!

April 5, 2017

Your voice, in this time of budget constraints and concerns, is needed more than ever.

Last spring, the House Appropriations Committee voted to provide $2.487 billion for McKinney in FY 2017, a $237 million increase. This would allow communities to house 40,000 more homeless people than this year. Congress may vote on final FY 2017 bills before April 28 ends.

This is an opportunity for a significant increase in resources we need to end homelessness!
