Advocacy 2019

During our Annual Meeting, PHOCUSED’s Members discussed a multitude of policy and funding ideas, and determined our 2019 Advocacy Priorities.

This year we will be driving efforts to increase affordable housing and expanding access to quality childcare.  In addition we will be actively supporting many initiatives to protect Hawaii’s most vulnerable populations.  For example:

  • Raising the Minimum Wage
  • Adding the current funding for Homelessness programs to the Base Budget
  • Increasing the Funding for Kupuna Caregivers
  • Massive investment in Permanent Supportive Housing (Vouchers and New Units)
  • Determining Medicaid eligibility annually
  • Paid Family Leave
  • Paid Sick Leave
