Action Alert: Tell U.S. senators to insist on changes to Better Care Reconciliation Act of 2017.  As it is currently written, the bill will radically reduce Medicaid for poor and disabled. https://www.votervoice.net/USCCB/home  

Action Alert: New York State Catholic Charities leaders were disappointed to read the state executive budget for fiscal year 2018 as several needs and funding for the human services sector were not included in the spending proposal.

Please contact your state representative to support these initiatives.
