Testify to Make Ending Poverty and Homelessness Budget Priorities

Build on Momentum at State Budget Hearings

State HouseThe dates for the Fiscal Year (FY) 17 State Budget Hearings have been posted and interested members of the public can sign-up to testify.

2016 has started with incredible momentum to make poverty and ending homelessness a legislative priority – in special legislative hearings, real movement on a $15 minimum wage, and more. There is the opportunity to carry these messages into the budget negotiations as well.

We hope that you will testify at one of the upcoming Assembly and Senate public budget hearings to support anti-poverty investments and ending homelessness.

A strong showing by advocates will demonstrate the huge constituency for investments in anti-poverty solutions and ending homelessness. Monarch Housing Associates can provide assistance in identifying talking points, but we need your help to make sure the message gets heard. Spots fill-up fast, so please sign up as soon as possible.
