MH Update – 3/6/20 – Update on #3for5


Statewide Human Services Organizations have continued to advocate for a three percent increase in funding for the next five years (#3for5).   The unified power of the entire sector speaking with one strong voice is unprecedented and it is working.  At all of our Legislative Days, we continue to identify#3for5 as a top priority.  Legislators and Staff of the Executive are all well aware of #3for5.

MARCH IS THE TIME TO ACT

Recognition is one thing but action is what we need.  March is the month we need to make this happen. We need your support and voice.  In the next week, we will be sending out a lot of materials and will be urging you to meet with your legislator.  In addition, you will get information about our upcoming rally and call-in days. Please participate.  Your voice is everything.  Whether you receive services, have a family member that receives services or are a provider struggling to do your mission driven work with diminished resources, now is the time to act.

WHAT CAN YOU DO IMMEDIATELY TO HELP?

One way you can immediately help is by having your organization join us as a supporter.  It cannot be simpler to join.   Just take a minute to send a note to  Sophie Theis at stheis@mhanys.org  and let her know that your organization want to join the list of over seventy organizations that are sponsors and supporters of #3for5.
