The Ask

We Won!

Thanks to the Pennsylvania General Assembly and Governor Tom Wolf for supporting home visiting! The new state budget includes a more than $6.5 million increase in the home visiting line items. Great work everyone!

Fiscal Year 2018-2019 State Budget Ask

Support a $6.5 million increase ($5.3M in the Community-Based Family Centers and $1.2M in the Nurse-Family Partnership line items) to expand evidence-based home visiting to an additional 800 families; train staff to better support families dealing with the opioid crisis; and provide a COLA to NFP and PAT.

Take Action

One of the most effective tools in a campaign is an active advocacy network. Your involvement is a key component of ensuring that our voices are heard in the state legislature.

Please thank your elected officials for their support of evidence-based home visiting. See how each legislator voted on the budget in the Senate and House. Contact your legislator and say thank you if they voted YES on the 2018-2019 fiscal year budget.
