Illinois Budget Update- The Illinois Senate has passed the homeless budget (Emergency and Transitional Housing Program) without cuts. The budget has to pass the House and be finalized by midnight Thursday, May 31. We will continue to give you updates regarding these crucial decision.
State budget cuts can mean the loss of many homeless shelter beds across the state. Unfortunately, smaller shelters organizations could be forced to close entirely. Our hope is that legislators will see the importance of shelter services for our states most vulnerable populations.
