The Family Violence Project, which serves Kennebec and Somerset counties, will receive nearly a $1 million federal grant to improve and expand on operations at Somerset House for victims of domestic violence who are also dealing with substance abuse issues, according to a press release issued by Rep.

Rural areas in Maine especially need more resources to deal with these terrible problems,” Pingree said ...

Congresswoman Pingree visits Preble Street Resource Center to meet constituents affected by sequestration
Indiscriminate federal cuts mean fewer homeless individuals can make it off the streets Indiscriminate federal cuts mean fewer homeless individuals can make it off the streetsCongresswoman Chellie Pingree met with several homeless individuals today whose access to housing vouchers has been jeopardized or already lost due to indiscriminate federal cuts known as the sequester. The meeting took place at Preble Street Resource Center, which has been working with the Portland Housing Authority to distribute housing assistance to the chronically homeless. Forty people were originally in the program—it has been cut to 20 because of the lack of funding sequester has created. "The stories I heard today show how important housing programs are to helping people get back on their feet, hold down a job, and keep their families together," Pingree said. "It's absolutely heartbreaking that Congress is closing the path out of homelessness for Mainers like Everett and Sam because it won't do its j
Statement on terrorist attack in Kenya
Congresswoman Chellie Pingree issued the following statement about the ongoing terrorist attack in Nairobi, Kenya and media reports that one of the terrorists may have links to Maine. The attack on a shopping mall in Nairobi is a brutal act of terrorism and my heart goes out to the people of Kenya and all the victims of the attack. Those responsible should be brought to justice swiftly. We have all heard reports that one of the terrorists may have connections to Portland, but it's important not to jump to conclusions or assume the reports are necessarily true. And whether or not the reports are true, we should not forget the many positive contributions the Somali community has made to our state, and we should continue to treat them with the dignity and respect they deserve. Pingree has been in touch with the FBI, State Department, Department of Homeland Security and Department of Justice as she follows the situation.  
Government moves closer to shutdown
Congresswoman Pingree calls tying the delay of healthcare reforms to the federal budget "reckless and irresponsible" Congresswoman Chellie Pingree issued the following statement after House Republicans pushed through a government funding bill that included provisions intended to undermine Obamacare early this morning. "This was a reckless and irresponsible move on the part of House Republicans that has taken us one step closer to a government shutdown. We spent a year debating Obamacare, fought two presidential elections over it and the Supreme Court ruled on it. It's the law of the land but the Tea Party cannot let go of its obsession with repealing it and have put their radical ideology and their hate for President Obama ahead of the needs of the country."  
Government Shutdown FAQ
This page covers how agencies and programs will be affected in the government shutdown. House Republicans have refused to give up on their efforts to eliminate or undermine the Affordable Care Act, creating a stalemate that forced a shutdown of the federal government beginning October 1. A government shutdown is unnecessary, will be a drag on our economy, and will affect millions of Americans. Some of the effects will be visible—here in Maine, Acadia National Park has had to shut down at the peak of the fall foliage season. Others will be harder to see, but still have significant impacts—for example, the Small Business Administration will stop making loans that help Maine business start up and grow. It's impossible to predict what will happen exactly as the shutdown proceeds, but I want Mainers to have the most up-to-date information available. My staff will continue to revise and update this page as necessary information becomes available or changes. While I don't want Mainer
