Join Homes for Families in this annual push for greater investment in the Massachusetts Rental Voucher Program (MRVP). See their notice below:
We at HFF are excited to announce that our annual MRVP Cookie Day event will take place on February 24th from 12-1pm. While we are usually at the State House for the event, we will be conducting this year’s Cookie Day via Zoom, and we would love for you to join!
Cookie Day is the biggest advocacy day of the year for MRVP, which we see as the most important resource for eradicating homelessness in the Commonwealth. Last year, the advocacy that happened during Cookie Day helped us secure increased funding for MRVP and dozens more co-sponsors for our bill to codify the program.
This year, we will be joined by advocates from across the State, shelter providers on the front lines, families with lived experience, and legislators from Beacon Hill, including Housing Committee Co-Chairs Senator John Keenan and Representative James Arciero. We will also be handing out the Big Cookie Award!
Please help us spread the word and encourage any families with whom you work to join us on February 24th. If you want more information about MRVP, Cookie Day, or how to engage families who might want to attend, please click here.
We will have more advocacy resources and information to share in the coming weeks, but don’t hesitate to reach out to me at Bdaly@homesforfamilies.org with any questions!
