CONCORD – Today, the Senate Health and Human Services Committee unanimously passed SB 140, Senator Cindy Rosenwald’s (D-Nashua) bill to make two appropriations to the Department of Health and Human Services – the first to increase homeless shelter case management services and the second for primary prevention services for families.
After the vote, prime sponsor Senator Cindy Rosenwald (D-Nashua) issued the following statement:
“Family Resource Centers have been at the frontlines for our families during the economic, health, and social crisis exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. The essential services they provide have been crucial to the needs of well over 7,000 families across the state. While SB 140 was originally intended to expand services, it is now a crucial funding measure as the Governor has zeroed out funding for our family resource centers in his budget proposal. I am grateful to my Senate colleagues for their bipartisan support of our FRC’s and our homeless shelter system.”
