THANK YOU FOR SUBMITTING YOUR COMMENTS ON THE PUBLIC CHARGE!!
We surpassed set goal of reaching 100,000 comments!!! Thank you so much for joining our fight against the proposed public charge with the many hundreds of thousand others across the country. We have 216,000 comments submitted — people shared their own and their families’ stories, health care and social service providers, members of Congress, state and local agencies and elected officials and more. As you know, the end of the comment period does not represent the end of this fight. We will now wait for maybe months or even longer for the government to publish a final rule or withdraw it. Once again, thank you for your support on this effort, as well as for your continued partnership.

Our stakeholder meeting on October 25th, 2018 with staff of Maine’s Congressional delegation to alert them of the impact of the Public Charge rule change in Maine was a success. Thank you to the valuable contributions of 33 organizations who attended. We had such great unified voice and are now well positioned to move forward together!
