Act Now: Tell Congress to Pass the Better Care Better Jobs Act, a Historic Investment in Disability Services

Act Now: Urge your Members of Congress to meet the needs of people with disabilities, their families, and the direct care workforce!

Thank you for your advocacy!! 


Today, the Better Care Better Jobs Act was introduced in Congress. This bill proposes a $400 billion investment in Medicaid home and community-based services (HCBS) to expand access to these vital services and create more and better direct care jobs.

The Better Care Better Jobs Act will be a game-changer in supporting people with disabilities, their family caregivers, and the direct care workforce.

When this bill becomes law, it will…

  • Provide huge funding enhancements to states that focus on improving and expanding their Medicaid HCBS delivery system.
  • Provide funding to expand access to home and community-based services for people who are currently on waiting lists for these services.
  • Create more and better direct care jobs for the paid workforce that provides these services. 

ACT NOW! Contact your legislators and tell them that the investments included in the Better Care Better Jobs Act must become law.

This is a desperately needed investment in Medicaid HCBS and a key part of The Arc’s priorities for economic recovery. Read this Time magazine article to learn more about why this investment is long overdue and how it will help build the infrastructure for people with disabilities to be able to live and thrive in their communities
