If you believe that Baldrige is one of America's best investments, please read on because those of us in Northern New England have a unique opportunity to make a difference.
The Baldrige Foundation is working to restore federal funding for the Baldrige Program in the FY2017 Budget. This process began with the Senate and House Appropriations Committees. Both Senator Shaheen (NH) and Senator Leahy (VT) are members of the Senate Committee and have been contacted. We now need everyone in New Hampshire, Maine, and Vermont to contact their Congressman (House or Representatives) and ask them to sign-on to Congressman Sam Graves' Appropariation request for Baldrige. Gongressman Graves is leading this fight for us and he needs the support of his colleagues - our member of congress. Please email your congress person using the information and documents provided to indicate your support for this small amount of funding that will make a tremendous difference to our country.
We appreciate you taking the time to support Baldrige. The $7.5 million appropriations request for restoration of federal funding combined with the Baldrige Foundation's financial support assures the Baldrige Program’s continued reach across key sectors of the economy, including health care and education, and strengthens the formal nation-wide network of state and regional programs.
Instructions for contacting your congressman:
- Explain to them the importance of the Baldrige Performance Excellence Program and ask them to support the Baldrige Program in the Fiscal Year 2017 appropriations (Text copy and PDF copy attached).
Feel free to add how the Baldrige Program affected you or your organization.
- Include the two attached pdf documents your correspondence. (Baldrige - America's Best Investment and CJS Approps Letter re Baldrige)

- Copy the Baldrige Foundation on your letter at: firstname.lastname@example.org
