Over 63% of Urbana voters said “yes” to support a tax levy increase for the poor. The increase represents about $3 more per month per household. As outlined in the Supervisor’s memo, this victory allows the Township to sustain core programs such as General Assistance, Rental Assistance, and Social Service Grants, while leveraging local funds with state and federal funds to continue to grow our programs and impact towards our goal of ending homelessness in Urbana.
