Ask Congress to Support a 19% Increase to HUD’s McKinney-Vento Programs

MV FundingThe President has proposed that Congress provide $2.38 billion in fiscal year (FY) 2014 for HUD’s McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Grants – a 19 percent increase over the final, sequestered level in FY 2013. Now, it’s up to us to ensure Congress follows through on the recommendation.

Please join us in writing letters to California Senators and your local Representative to ask them to support a funding level of $2.38 billion for HUD’s McKinney-Vento programs. Without an increase in funding, Los Angeles County won’t be able to continue existing CoC and ESG activities.

Representatives are likely to be voting on a HUD funding bill in the next few weeks! So, we need YOUR help to convince them to include a funding level of $2.38 billion for HUD’s McKinney-Vento programs.

What You Can Do:

Write a letter! Ask your colleagues and clients to write letters, too! A letter template is attached below for download. Tell the National Alliance to End Homelessness who you contacted! Email Julie Klein at jklein@naeh.org

Why is this important? When Should You Act?

To have the greatest impact, everyone should send letters at the same time, from now through June 30. The House and Senate are about to begin writing, releasing, and voting on funding bills, so NOW is the time to start influencing our Members of Congress so we can make sure they prioritize funding for HUD’s McKinney-Vento programs.

The Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing Program (HPRP) made a HUGE difference in Los Angeles County. But with HPRP funds gone and sequestration putting a tremendous strain on our homeless assistance systems, we need further federal investment to keep homelessness from rising, to continue funding existing ESG and CoC activities, and to implement the HEARTH Act, with its focus on proven solutions like homelessness prevention, rapid re-housing, and permanent supportive housing.
