Advocacy Resources

To maximize our effectiveness, UNH sets priorities for its City and State advocacy work, based on the needs of UNH member agencies and the communities they serve. After the Mayor and Governor release their respective budgets and after adoption, UNH also produces budget summaries that explain how funding changes impact human service programs. UNH's policy priorities and budget summaries for the past fiscal year are listed below.

If you have any questions or need additional information about UNH's Budget Priorities, please contact Gregory Brender.
