Opening Doors-CT Legislative Recommendations
On behalf of the statewide Opening Doors-CT effort, the Partnership for Strong Communities has compiled legislative recommendations for FY 2015-2016. These recommendations are the result of months of discussion, research, and collaboration with community providers and state agencies through the seven Reaching Home Workgroups, Coordinating Committee, and Steering Committee. Recommendations include:
Expand permanent supportive housing to address chronic and youth homelessness
Expand rapid re-housing across the state
Allocate service dollars for existing recipients of CT’s Integrated Health and Housing Neighborhood pilot project
Sustain financial support of the Homeless Youth Program
Continue development of deeply affordable housing
More information about advocacy opportunities is forthcoming. Advocacy opportunities include webinars on the budget process and writing testimony, as well as attending lobby days at the legislative office building.
