The City of Portland is giving YOU a voice in how they spend $46 million in Federal American Rescue Plan Act funds. Participate in their poll and tell them that homeless services and affordable housing need to be priorities!
The shortage of affordable housing, a lack of supportive shelters, and the COVID-19 pandemic have created a crisis in Maine, forcing more people experiencing homelessness to go unsheltered, in sometimes life-threatening temperatures, without a safe place to stay. Allocating some of these funds to affordable housing and 24/7 shelters will save lives and strengthen our community. Take the poll before it closes on September 17!
