A new budget is on the horizon! Make your voice heard!

The Massachusetts House of Representatives and the Senate are currently meeting to reconcile their versions of the FY19 Budget. Click below to voice your support!

FY19 Conference Committee

As you may know, the Massachusetts State Legislature is working on the state’s FY19 budget, set to go into effect on July 1. The House and Senate each passed their own versions, and there’s a conference committee meeting now to hammer out the differences.

At United Way, we have been closely following both budgets and need to use our voice to increase quality early education to more young children in need, enhance out-of-school time programs and summer learning opportunities, and provide critical funds to prevent homelessness.

Please take a moment to urge your legislator to tell the conference committee members to prioritize children, youth, and families in the state budget.

It’s important that lawmakers hear from their constituents on issues that matter. Please contact your representative and senator now.
