Legislature Overrides Vetoes and Finalizes FY19 Budget

Please see the message below from Eric Shupin of CHAPA:

Last week, the Legislature finalized the FY2019 state budget and overrode the Governor’s veto of the foreclosure prevention and housing counseling program (7006-0011). The House and Senate both voted to restore $500,000 to the program and re-insert language allowing grants to be made to support housing counseling programs.

Together, we helped to secure increased investments for 12 of our Building Blocks budget priorities – for an overview of our priorities in the final budget, click here. We also achieved important programmatic changes that will help make these resources more effective.

Again, thank you for your advocacy throughout the entire budget process. Thank you for every meeting, email, phone call, and hearing!
