SEPT. 10th: CALL TO ACTION - TRiO FUNDING
Greetings MI-CAPP Membership!
Congress is back in session! But with only 10 working days until the end of the fiscal year, Congress will have to act fast to avoid another government shutdown. To help ensure that we maintain momentum and build on the progress of the $60 million increase approved by the House Appropriations Committee, we urge all TRIO supporters to send a “Welcome Back” message to their Members of Congress that highlights the need for increased TRIO funding in FY 2016 (Program Year 2016-2017).
Even though it is all but certain that Congress will pass a short-term Continuing Resolution or “CR” that maintains level-funding for several weeks, your messages will plant important seeds for the larger funding debate that will happen at the end of the year. At that time, Congress must determine not only the funding levels for the rest of FY 2016, but also address the debt ceiling and return of sequestration.
You can contact your Members of Congress via this link on the COE webpage. To help get you started, we’ve included a sample message. Be sure to let us know of any messages that you send so we can count it for our Summer Advocacy Challenge!
