SAMPLE ADVOCACY LETTER 6/19/2012 6/19/2012 6/19/2012 6/19/2012 6/19/2012 6/19/2012 6/19/2012 6/19/2012 6/19/2012 6/19/2012 6/19/2012 6/19/2012 6/19/2012 6/19/2012 Congressman Paul Tonko 105 Jay Street Room 15 Schenectady, New York 12305 Re: Child care, early intervention and mental health funding Dear Congressman Tonko: As one of your constituents I urge you to consider the following funding priorities. Restore the $37 million funding for child care subsidies Restore the Early Intervention (EI) Program to the FY 2010-11 level of $230 million Increase the total of all child care funding by 10% Maintain the current commitment of $384.3 million to support Pre-K services Please insure that all of New York’s children receive access to safe, affordable, quality early intervention programs and child care by supporting the above funding. Research has shown that quality child care for infants and young children lays the groundwork for later success in school and life. I urge you to support NYS legislation that would enable families to acquire intensive mental health services for their children without relinquishing custody. Having improved mental health services will give children and parents more confidence to speak up ,receive help earlier and keep families together. The current lack of funding for children and families diminishes their dignity. I am thanking you in advance for your kind attention and support to these matters. Together, let us guarantee the success of children, one of the most vulnerable populations and secure a better future for all. Sincerely,
