3For5 Campaign – Your Assistance Needed!

March 6, 2020

Statewide Human Services Organizations have been working hard to advocate for a three percent increase in funding on rates and contracts for each of the next five years (#3for5).  The unified power of the entire sector speaking with one strong voice is unprecedented and it is working. At all of our Legislative Days we continue to identify #3for5 as a top priority. Lawmakers and staff at all levels of government are well aware of the #3for5 Campaign and why we desperately need these resources.


Recognition is one thing but action is another. March is the month we need to make this happen. We need your support and your active participation in advocacy efforts designed to get this done. Next week, we will be sending out advocacy materials and urging you to meet with your local lawmakers. In addition, you will receive information about our upcoming rally (March 25 in Albany) and numerous call-in days. Please participate.  Pass this note on to others! Whether you receive services, have a family member that receives services, or you are a provider struggling to sustain your organization with severely limited resources, now is the time to act.


One way you can immediately help is by having your organization join us as a supporter. Just take a minute to send a note to Lauri Cole at lauri@nyscouncil.org and let me know that your organization wants to join the list of over seventy organizations that are sponsors and supporters of #3for5.
