Rhode Island Leaders Rhode Island Statehouse legislature governor budget

Thank you to our Rhode Island Leaders!

On June 27, 2022, Governor McKee signed a historic state budget, approving significant investment into the state’s health and human service sector, particularly for Rhode Island’s most vulnerable children and families.

We are deeply grateful to Governor McKee, Speaker Shekarchi, Senate President Ruggiero, and House and Senate Leadership for their collective hard work to ensure rate increases and investments for Early Childhood and DCYF-funded programming, as well as to create a system to regularly review the array and rates of human service programming in our state, which will ensure access to services for those who need them and adequate funding for organizations who provide them, like FSRI. These actions can save vital services for future generations of vulnerable Rhode Island children and families.


Thank you for making a brighter future for our state’s children! 

Signed With Gratitude, Margaret Holland McDuff and Board President John Simmons
