Federal Government Wants Public Input on Programs to End Homelessness - til March 15th

the feds are opening up idea and comment opportunities to us all until march 15th 2010. take advantage of this opportunity to write a coherent idea for all to see and vote on. and then vote on othrs' and comment. Program plans are being made as to how to address issues of homelessness with that huge federal gov't pie full of funding.
Just a quick note, to let all concerned readers and especially those with good ideas, know where to go to get their voice heard so to speak. From what I can see, it looks like nonprofits and organizations have dominated the page so they can get their funding and I don't see a huge presence of actual real homeless advocates.
SO REAL HOMELESS AND REAL ADVOCATES, PLEASE GO THERE AND PUT IN SOME RELEVANT SUGGESTIONS other than the usual "we need more money for our salaries" rant from the fatcats who usually eat up all the program moneys before they defecate out some little bit of actual help for the homeless.

THE FORUM FOR YOUR INPUT WILL CLOSE ON MONDAY, MARCH 15TH.
