Take Action with Us Calling on Governor Baker to Release FY'18 Homelessness Funds
December 28, 2017, last updated January 3, 2018

January 2nd update: Thank you to everyone who took action with us! We heard today that the Governor has released all of the youth homelessness funds (totaling $675,000). We are awaiting final confirmation that the RAFT homelessness prevention funds also willl be released. Here is coverage from State House News and WCVB: http://www.wcvb.com/article/gov-baker-lifts-hold-on-spending-earmarks/14532127 and the Boston Globe: https://www.bostonglobe.com/metro/2018/01/01/baker-withholds-money-for-human-service-programs/f0dLFUjgb35Am34E2WLkSJ/story.html

January 3rd update: The Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) still is awaiting confirmation that the increased RAFT funds will be released. 


Please join us in asking Governor Charlie Baker to release key homelessness funds already allocated by the Legislature for fiscal year 2018: $675,000 for housing and services for youth and young adults experiencing homelessness (line item 4000-0007) and $2 million in homelessness prevention funds for elders, people with disabilities, and youth through the Residential Assistance for Families in Transition program (line item 7004-9316).

Even though the fiscal year is halfway over and there is tremendous need, these funds have not been spent.

Read the Coalition's letter to the Governor here and sign/share our online action today.

You also can reach the Governor's office by calling 617-725-4005, 888-870-7770, or TTY: 617-727-3666.


If you have questions or receive any feedback, please contact Kelly and Tina.

Thank you for taking action with us!
