Dear Colleague,

Two weeks ago, we informed you about a new coalition, the Non-Defense Discretionary Summit (NDD), that NHSA joined to help fight against automatic spending cuts (sequestration).

NDD created a sign-on letter and is encouraging all local, state, and national Non-Defense Discretionary spending programs - including Head Start - to sign. We strongly encourage you to join the effort by signing onto the letter. You can find the letter and sign-on to it by clicking here. The deadline for signing is FRIDAY JUNE 22nd, 2012.

To avoid any concerns regarding the ability for Grantees to sign the letter, we offer three recommendations:

  1. Have your board chair or policy council chair actually sign the letter.
  2. Use unrestricted funds for the time spent discussing and signing the letter.
  3. If you are a public organization (e.g. School District or local government), check with your organization's lawyers first.

This is an incredibly important effort and a critical time for action. Please contact Tommy Sheridan ( if you have any questions.

Thank you for your leadership!
