It’s time for a HISTORIC investment in disability funding, so everyone can get the support they need to live in their community – instead of in institutions.
People with disabilities rely on home and community-based services (HCBS) for everyday things like employment supports, getting around the community, dressing, bathing, taking medication, and much more.
But there isn’t enough money in the HCBS program to support everyone. Too many people are stuck on waiting lists and not getting the services they need. Direct care workers are underpaid, which leads to high turnover, critical staffing shortages, and compromised care for many people with disabilities. All too often, this means unpaid family caregivers are filling in the gaps of care.
The good news is that the U.S. House of Representatives has already passed the Build Back Better Act, which included $150 billion is HCBS funding. This critical funding will support millions of people with disabilities access the services needed to live independently. Now it’s time for the Senate to act so this bill can be signed into law!
