McKinney Sign-On Letters Circulating NOW!

Gwen Moore (D-WI) began asking their colleagues in the House and Senate to join a "Dear Colleague" Member sign-on letter in support of HUD's McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Grants. The Senate letter calls for robust funding for the program in fiscal year (FY) 2015, and the House letter calls for providing $2.405 billion for the program in FY 2015 - the same amount requested by the President in his Budget Proposal. Both letters received a strong showing last year, so we need to work to make sure we get as many signatures as possible on both the House and Senate letters!
