The Crisis is at Hand for Developmental Disability Services!

Action Alert!!!

April 18, 2018

Please contact your representatives TODAY and let them know that you are OPPOSED to House Bill 1 (the proposed budget).   This is time sensitive, as representatives will be voting on HB 1 as early as tomorrow!  

There are two main problems with House Bill 1:

1.  HB 1 eliminates services for all those with developmental disabilities whose income is over $750 a month.   This means that more than half of the people who are currently receiving services will no longer be eligible for services.

2.  HB 1 does not contain enough money to fully fund the current services!   Waiver providers, case management providers, and community home providers received several rate cuts over the past 10 years, but those cuts were never restored.   In addition, community home rates are supposed to be rebased every three years but the rates haven't been rebased since 2008.      

Call today!  Ask your representatives to SAVE OUR SERVICES.   They can save our services if they:

1.  Add $40 million to the budget to RESTORE AND REBASE! 

2.  Continue allowing the "special income limit."
