Budget Update and Hearing at City Hall 
people at rally
Mark your calendar for the annual budget hearing at City Hall, June 19 starting at 10:00 in the Board of Supervisor Chambers.  
The Senior and Disability Budget Rally at City Hall was one more step in the process to fight for more support for seniors and adults with disabilities. While the Dignity Fund passed by the voters last November was a hopeful downpayment, the needs and number of San Franciscans at risk continues to grow. We know there is some good news in the budget - the $6 million in new funding in the Dignity Fund and a 2.5% cost of doing business increase for the City's non-profit contractors. The Dignity Fund Coalition continues to advocate for more funding for priority issues like home delivered meals, housing subsidies and targeted services in high need neighborhoods. The next meeting of the Dignity Fund Coalition will be Wednesday, June 28 from 2:30 to 4:30 at ILRC, 825 Howard.
