PCCYFS continues its discussions at the state to push for provider-oriented investments to be included in Governor Shapiro’s FY24 state budget.
- As we continue to meet with legislators to share our one-pager on provider priorities, we share about the necessary investments for providers to meet minimum wage requirements, investments in mental health, challenges of the current state and county reimbursement model, and the inclusion of human services in the Governor’s proposed workforce tax credits. We also encourage providers to reach out to their legislators through our email notifications – sign up here to receive our advocacy emails!
- PCCYFS drafted a memo to Senator Lynda Schlegel Culver (R-27), regarding specifics on our workforce tax credit proposal, given her particular interest in the issue, as a member of the Appropriations, Aging and Youth, and Health and Human Services Committees.
- Additionally, while legislators are not anticipating a budget impasse, PCCYFS has continued to raise the issue of children’s services being designated as an essential service, in the chance another budget impasse should arise.
