Yesterday the Massachusetts State Senate passed a supplemental budget for FY2018 that includes investments in regional transportation, education and critical resources for low-income and homeless families.

Highlights include additional funding for:

  • Regional Transit Authorities
  • Local school districts’ special education costs
  • Healthy Incentives Program to increase access to healthy food for low income residents
  • Other programs for Massachusetts children and families.

These state and local investments serve communities across the Commonwealth, working to provide more residents with access to support and opportunities necessary for success
