|Suggested text for your legislative outreach:
“My name is xxx and I am writing/calling to ask you to support the Early Intervention budget request for Fiscal Year 2019. I am the (title) of the Early Intervention Program serving over xxx children and families in your district. I have attached the EI budget fact sheet which provides background on the budget request. (If you have any special events coming up -legislative breakfast, agency anniversary etc…be sure to mention it to personalize your outreach).
Thank you for your past support for Early Intervention and I hope you will make Early Intervention one of your budget priorities again this year. Your support means so much to our agency and the children and families we are privileged to serve each day. (If you know your legislator well and they have been supportive of EI, be sure to personalize this and thank them for their outstanding leadership and support on behalf of Early Intervention).
Please don’t hesitate to contact me at xxxx with any questions.” .”
