Join us in urging the Governor to invest in disability services!
To tackle the workforce crisis, we’re asking the Governor to include in her proposed budget:
A Direct Support Wage Enhancement of $4,000 per eligible employee
Under the DSWE, provider agencies will receive $4,000 per eligible employee to be used for the purpose of enhancing the hourly rate of pay for all staff that have direct care/support responsibilities for individuals with I/DD.
An 8.5% Cost-of-Living Adjustment
Due to significant inflation and supply chain disruptions have resulted in significant financial pressure on agencies, necessitating an 8.5% COLA to be included in the 2024 NYS Budget to ensure the long-term sustainability of non-profit disability service providers.
Be a champion for New Yorkers with disabilities and the people who care for them!
