Sign our letter to congress
We cannot let Congress balance the budget on the backs of our nation’s most vulnerable populations.
Caps on federal spending are harmful to homeless service programs. The Alliance is working with the Campaign for Housing and Community Development Funding to circulate a letter urging Congress to lift these harmful caps on federal spending in FY 2018 and provide the highest level of funding possible for these programs.

Here's What You Can Do:
  1. Read and sign on to the letter by Friday, March 3!
  2. Share the letter and encourage organizations in your network to sign on too!
More Information:
The new Administration and Congress are considering significant cuts to the federal budget. We need to put up a strong fight to ensure that budget cuts do not fall disproportionately on critical programs, including homeless assistance and affordable housing programs that serve many of our nation’s most vulnerable people. Investments in these programs allow us to end homelessness and reduce housing instability.
Please sign this letter asking Members of Congress to lift spending caps and ensure affordable housing, community development, and transportation programs receive the highest allocation of discretionary funds possible.

Webinar - Outreach Strategies: Veteran Treatment Courts and Employment Services

Webinar - Outreach Strategies: Veteran Treatment Courts and Employment Services
Free webinar on Tuesday, Feb. 21, 2017 at 2:00 p.m. ET
The National Veterans Technical Assistance Center (NVTAC) is hosting the webinar “Outreach Strategies: Veteran Treatment Courts and Employment Services” on Tuesday, Feb. 21, 2017 at 2:00 p.m. ET.
Founded in 2008 by a judge in Buffalo, New York, the Veteran Treatment Court (VTC) program model includes regular court appearances, treatment sessions, and drug testing with the support of an interdisciplinary team. The program connects veterans to a variety of resources, including employment services, and structured accountability to prevent them from reoffending. Homeless Veterans’ Reintegration Program (HVRP) grantees can play a critical role in meeting the employment needs of these veterans. This webinar will provide an overview of the VTC model, including the key partners required and outcomes achieved, and examine the partnership between an HVRP grantee and the local VTC.
The webinar will feature David Pelletier J.D., Program Director at Justice For Vets, Ronald Hill, Program Coordinator, and Paul Kutniewski, Intake Specialist, both from the Maryland Center for Veterans Education and Training, Inc. (MCVET) as guest speakers.
