Real reform should create opportunity for families; not push them into deeper poverty.

Urge your legislators to support proposals that would create opportunity for families living on the edge:

  • LD 1268 would chart a course to create new opportunity for thousands of Maine families.
  • LD 1188 would create a rental assistance program for low-income households and individuals.
  • LD 1052 would waive the 3-month limit on food assistance for those areas of the state where jobs are scarce.
  • LD 808, LD 633 and LD 854 would improve the lives of nearly 70,000 Maine people by increasing access to health care.

Get the facts on so-called “welfare reform” proposals that will push families into deeper poverty.
