(BRING IT HOME CAMPAIGN) Now-December 31, 2018 — Tell Governor Cuomo to Adequately Fund Mental Health Housing in NYS!
Please take a moment to send an E-letter directly to Governor Cuomo to remind him of the importance of adequately funding Mental Health Housing programs across New York State!
It is so easy to do! Just click this link, then enter your street address, zip code, and full name and a digital copy of an E-letter will be generated addressed from you to the Governor! You can then either choose to e-mail it to him OR print and mail a hard copy.
We have created this letter because the Governor and his team are working on the Executive State Budget for 2019/2020 as you read this message. Once the Governor’s Budget is released in January, it will be very difficult to get additional funding added above the amount that he proposes. That’s why it is imperative that we make it clear to the Governor that he needs to put substantial resources in his executive budget proposal NOW.
Our goal is to send at least 25,000 letters to the Governor before he finalizes his budget in mid-December.
We encourage you to send the E-letter again, and again and please forward this link to anyone who would also be willing to send it!
Thank You for helping us Bring It Home!
