We are only two weeks from when the 2019 - 2020 State Budget will be finalized!  We must get an incremental housing rate hike this year!

As of today, Governor Cuomo has added $10 million, the Senate has added $13 million and the Assembly has added $20 million in additional funds for OMH housing  rates.  They will now negotiate. 

We want them to agree to the Assembly’s proposed $20 million!

WE NEED EVERYONE TO CALL LEADERS TO MAKE SURE THAT WE ARE INCLUDED AT THE TOP POSSIBLE AMOUNT!  

Call the following:
Governor Andrew Cuomo: (518) 474-8390

Senator Andrea Stewart-Cousins: (518) 455-2585

Assemblyman Carl Heastie: (518) 455-3791

 

and say the following statement to the person who answers or to the voicemail:

 

"Please Make Sure That the Final Budget Includes the Full $20 Million in Funding

That the Assembly Proposed for Mental Health Housing.”

 

THANK YOU!
