Today, the Senate is expected to release their own version of the American Healthcare Act (AHCA) that passed the House last month, and recent reports say they could vote as early as next week!  The House bill cuts over $800 billion to Medicaid, is estimated to leave 23 million more people without health insurance, and would be devastating to communities battling homelessness.

Now is the time to act, and today is our National Call-In Day to Protect Medicaid! It will only take 3 Senators to reject these cuts, and your calls can make the difference. Together, we can send a message that your Senator needs to:
  1. Vote NO on any healthcare bill that cuts or caps Medicaid, or phases out the Medicaid expansion.
  2. Commit to protecting coverage for people escaping homelessness, including services for people with severe health or mental health conditions, and those recovering from substance abuse disorders.
  3. Commit to holding a public hearing on a final bill, to ensure we know how it will impact the most vulnerable in our community before a vote.
CLICK HERE TO CALL YOUR SENATOR TODAY

We need as many people to call as possible, so once you’ve made your calls, tell your friends, share the link above and mobilize your network today!

Back in March I blogged about the exciting start of the 90 Day Housing Challenge in Georgia. As part of the challenge, 18 organizations across Georgia vowed to move as many families, individuals, and youth as possible from homelessness to homes over the course of 90 days. Monday, June 12 marked the end of the challenge. Today I am excited to announce that 451 households have moved into permanent housing as a result of these shelters rising to the “Challenge.”

Throughout the month of May, the Alliance will post weekly blogs dedicated to helping communities prepare for the Continuum of Care (CoC) Program Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA).  This is the third blog in that series.

Last week, we blogged about what the 2017 CoC Program NOFA Registration Notice tells us about the upcoming competition. As communities anxiously await the release of the NOFA, there are a number of steps CoCs can take now to get ready. These steps, which are outlined in the Alliance’s CoC Awards Preparation Checklist, include:
