You Can Help – Bridge Funding
If you reached out to the state legislature in April – THANK YOU! The Senate budget included 2 full years of bridge funding to offset the FFPSA implementation starting in October 2021. Now, the House is working on their budget and we need to make sure they include this funding in their budget bill as well. We also want to encourage them to include the foster care reimbursement rate increase which was part of the Senate budget.
We ask that you please take some time out of your day July 14 or 15 to reach out to the House members below who are on the committee to ask them to include the bridge funding and foster care rate reimbursement in their budget.
Please call our office if you have any questions or want some additional information. Thank you, in advance, for your help in supporting this funding for our at-promise children!
