We Advocate for You

Last fall, The Alliance surveyed our member agencies regarding the impact of the state budget impasse on our communities. We speak with one voice regarding the interconnectedness of the entire health and human services sector and the urgent need for Governor Rauner and the members of the General Assembly to swiftly resolve this impasse and agree to a budget with adequate revenue to fund the health and human services sector.

In October, we sent a letter  to Governor Rauner and other elected officials describing the impacts on our communities. Read the full letter here.
