On January 26, the Pennsylvania ID/A provider associations submitted a unified budget request to Governor Shapiro. This letter requests $430 million in state funds, matched by federal dollars, to address a growing workforce crisis jeopardizing the future of all community services. Governor Shapiro’s proposed budget for the upcoming state fiscal year will be released on March 7.
Yesterday, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette editorial board weighed in with their strong support for investment in the ID/A system, “An Opportunity to Stabilize Pennsylvania’s Disability Care System.”
We are now asking for your help. Please visit our Action Center to share your personal story with Governor Shapiro.
Please forward this message to others who share your passion and concern for the needs of people with intellectual disability and autism, their families, and the DSPs who provide their needed care and support.
Thank you for your generous time and dedicated support to this mission.
