Current budget environment to effect McKinney funding

There is little doubt that Congress will cut spending even more than they did in the final FY 2011 bill. Congressional and White House leaders are negotiating about the larger debt/deficit situation. Whatever deal they reach, which is expected by July 22nd, it will establish the overall amount of funding available to the appropriations committees for FY 2012.

Congressmen Sires, Pascrell and Holt have already agreed to support $2.4 billion for HUD’s McKinney-Vento in the FY’12 Budget. We need to thank them for their support and encourage other members of the delegation to support this level of funding!

It is up to all of us to make sure that those cuts do not happen on the backs of people experiencing or at risk of homelessness!
