Contact your Representative today to seek an increase in funding for the FY2022 Statewide Family Engagement Centers (SFEC) program. Rep. Mark DeSaulnier (D-CA) and Rep. Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson (R-PA) are currently circulating a bipartisan letter internally through the House, asking representatives to join them in seeking no less than $20 million for the program. The FY2021 level of funding is currently only $12.25 million. However, students and families in nearly 40 states and territories that have previously utilized the program will be unable to benefit from the supports and services provided by SFECs unless Congress provides more funding.
Now, more than at any other time, families are critical and primary to the success of their children. Congress must continue to recognize the important role of parents and families in a child’s education and support the Statewide Family Engagement Centers program. The best way to make your voice heard is by contacting your Representative today. It takes just a minute and will make a big impact. The deadline for your Representative to sign onto the SFEC letter is April 26th!
