ACT NOW: ANCOR Continues Legislative Push

Your advocacy is needed! Please reach out to Congress to advocate for funding for Medicaid Disability Providers!

Thanks to your advocacy, the House passed the HEROES Act last Friday, which includes critical resources for disability service providers. However, these provisions have a long way to go before becoming law. They are now in the Senate, where there will be much negotiation before a final vote.

It is critical we keep the pressure on the Senators to keep key provisions in this bill. We need you to reach out to your Senators to ensure the disability community gets the funding it so desperately needs!

The Ask

Tell Congress to demand that federal relief dollars reach Medicaid-funded providers of long-term supports and services to constituents with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). We are more than 70 days into the pandemic, and the federal government has not designated a single dollar of emergency relief specifically for Medicaid-funded disability providers.

How

Use this email tool from ANCOR, our national trade association, to tell Congress they must take steps NOW to ensure disability services are funded by the Public Health & Social Services Emergency Fund. They already composed a message for you, you just need to add in your information. It’s that easy!

Thank you for advocating for the entire disability community!
