The President’s FY2018 “skinny budget” proposes significant cuts in domestic funding. Please take action today to support the McKinney-Vento Act’s Education for Homeless Children and Youth (EHCY) program and the Runaway and Homeless Youth Act (RHYA) programs:
1. Meet with, and/or send a letter to your U.S. Senators and U.S. Representative in support of EHCY and RHYA funding. We’ve created a sample letter in Microsoft Word. Download the letter, edit it, and send one version to your U.S. Representative, and one version to both of your U.S. Senators.
3. Sign your organization on to a letter urging Congress to fully fund the Education for Homeless Children and Youth program, the Runaway and Homeless Youth Act program, and HUD homeless assistance programs.
