This hearing is our opportunity to advocate for housing supports and services to help vulnerable populations maintain stable housing, as well as enhanced outreach services to better identify those experiencing unsheltered homelessness.
The Governor has also included an expansion of $3 million in funding for community placements for individuals at Connecticut Valley Hospital to support those who are ready for discharge back into their communities. Please consider supporting this expansion. See testimony template for more details.
