This is an update on a few small changes on our McKinney appropriations advocacy effort.
What Has Changed:
2. Two Senators are circulating a sign-on letter asking for the $1.8 billion for McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Grants. Your Senator can either send an individual letter in support of this request or can sign this letter. This makes it EASIER for your Senators to support McKinney because two Senators have already taken the lead – Members of Congress tend to like knowing that they are not out on their own in supporting a policy issue.
Which Senators have committed so far?
Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Chicago already know that Senator Durbin will be signing this letter and the Supportive Housing Network of New York knows that Senator Schumer will be signing.
