ACTION ALERT: Please reach out to your legislators today!

Please help us advocate for a better Medicaid system to support individuals with disabilities!

We just received an Action Alert from The Arc, a national trade group dedicated to promoting and protecting the human rights of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. 

We need your help reaching out to your legislator to encourage them to support people with disabilities and improve the Medicaid system!

The Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program benefit levels and rules have not been updated for decades, forcing people with disabilities to live in poverty to maintain their needed benefits.

Now, the Administration has included a long-overdue investment in the disability service system as part of a COVID-19 economic recovery. It's time for Congress to act to fund $400 billion for the Medicaid home and community-based services (HCBS) system, increase wages for the direct care workforce, and create more of these jobs.

Visit the link below to reach out to our members of Congress and urge them to support us! All you need to do is click on the link below, enter in your information, and hit send. It’s that easy! The Arc already wrote up a message for us to use.
