We need your support by writing to the Joint Finance Committee (JFC). I have provided a letter template that you can use when you write to JFC, Senator or/and Representative.
We have a budget proposal that Governor Ever had put in for our Deaf/Hard of Hearing/DeafBlind community related to $1.9 million to support the Behavioral Health Treatment program in Wisconsin. Deaf, Hard of Hearing and Deaf-Blind Behavioral Health Treatment Program.
***Provide $1,936,000 General Purpose Revenue (GPR) in Fiscal Year (FY25) for a grant to establish a state-wide behavioral health treatment program for individuals who are Deaf, Hard of Hearing or Deaf-Blind. ***
We need your help to submit your letter to the Joint Finance Committee (JFC) today and tomorrow. It is also, helpful to submit the letter to your Senator/Representative in your home area too.
I know this is the last minute as I just learned that tomorrow is the last day to submit your letter. We need many letters to submit to the JFC today and tomorrow. WAD has created a letter template that you can use to submit the letter to the JFC, your Senator and Representative.
