Cuts are hurting our communities that serve low-income families, the homeless and those with special needs. And we need you to join us in Washington and to encourage Senators Menendez and Booker and your Representatives to join us.
If you have registered for the Congressional Reception please email your elected officials who have not yet told us they are coming. Contact information for each member can be found on the sidebar of this post or by clicking here. Please email or call their office or tag them in a social media post, encouraging them to come.
President Trump’s proposed budget would devastate funding to the U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and Medicaid. We need to use our voices to protect the funding for federal programs that are working to end homelessness in New Jersey and ensure that homelessness across the state does not increase. Preventing homelessness is an economic issue for all of us. For more details read our recent post on the impact of the cuts – NJ’s Economy Will Lose Under Proposed Cuts to HUD, SNAP and Medicaid by President Trump.
