There have been several requests on this blog for advocacy on the budget for MRVP–here, here, here, and here.  The line item had been funded at $35.8 million for the current year, and was threatened with a cut of almost 50%.  You did your work well.  The budget coming out of the conference committee is just shy $30 million. In addition, MassHousing is committed to providing $2.5 million, bringing total funding to just under $32.5 million.  It’s not full funding, but it’s significantly better than what we started with.  Great work.
