ACTION ALERT: Medicaid Supportive Housing in Jeopardy, Act Now Before Budget Finalized!

ACTION ALERT: SAVE THE MRT SUPPORTIVE HOUSING PROGRAM!

We need our entire healing community to phone zap our senators today! The Medicaid Redesign Team Supportive Housing Program provides housing and supports to over 4600 High Cost Medicaid Users that are homeless and in need of housing and support. If Medicaid patients do not have access to adequate housing, they are for more likely to end up in institutional settings which will greatly increase Medicaid and other costs to New York State.

The Senate has proposed cutting $25 million of the Medicaid Redesign Team Supportive Housing Program jeopardizing supportive housing for thousands of high-cost Medicaid users.

Call the following Senators and urge them to fully fund the Medicaid Redesign Team Supportive Housing Fund!

Senator Hannon: 518-455-2200
Senator DeFrancisco: 518-455-3511
Senator Skelos: 518-455-3171
Senator Klein: 518-455-3595

Please urge your fellow networks to call today. Your support matters!
