On behalf of National PTA, thank you for your support of the Statewide Family Engagement Centers (SFECs) program. Last year, your state PTA signed onto a letter of support regarding FY18 funding for the program. I have attached those letters for your reference. As you know, SFECs are funded in the FY18 omnibus bill that has cleared both the House and Senate was just signed by the President.
We look forward to continuing to work with you to ensure that SFECs receive continued funding in future appropriations cycles. Congress has already begun the FY19 cycle and we will be following up with you all in a few weeks regarding an organizational support letter for continued appropriations. The House has already circulated a Dear Colleague letter that received the bipartisan support of 54 members and was led Congressman Mark DeSaulnier (D-CA) and GT Thompson (R-PA). A letter will be circulating in the Senate soon led by Senators Coons (D-DE), Reed (D-RI) and Tillis (R-NC) that we will share with you once it is available.
Thank you again for your support and advocacy of this important program!
