A message from The Anchorage Coalition to End Homelessness (ACEH) and The Alaska Coalition on Housing and Homelessness (AKCH2):

During a 12/11/19 press conference, Governor Dunleavy announced his FY21 proposed budget. See the chart below for a comparison of the four major homeless services funding streams over the last three budget cycles:

Each of these funding sources plays an essential role in serving the most vulnerable in Alaska.

The Alaska Coalition on Housing and Homelessness (AKCH2) and the Anchorage Coalition to End Homelessness (ACEH), upon initial analysis, recognize and appreciate that the proposed budget does not include major cuts to the already limited funds for homeless services. We again thank Alaskans for speaking out in support of vulnerable Alaskans. Your voices mattered. Over the next few weeks, we will be deepening our analysis to include behavioral health, housing assistance weatherization programs, Medicaid and other supportive services that may impact homelessness in communities across our state. We urge you to carefully watch the budget and to contact your elected officials to let them know that we must continue to protect the most vulnerable Alaskans and our shared community health, safety and well-being.
