Urge the Governor and the General Assembly to Include No Less than a 4% Increase for DDA Community Service Providers in the FY21 Budget!
Dear Friends of The Arc,
Last Spring, you helped us #Fightfor15, and with the influence of your voice, we were able to attain a mandate that the Governor include a 4% increase in his FY21 budget for developmental disability services. Our work is not done! Although the legislature mandated that the Governor include this funding in his budget, there is a legal avenue he could use to include the funding, and then remove it through a companion piece of legislation.
Now that the Governor is actively developing his budget for FY21, we need to emphasize even more why it is critical that the budget reflects this increase. Please help us advocate for our community. Encourage the Governor to include enough funding in his budget to ensure providers like The Arc can continue to deliver quality service and supports to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
The Governor Values the Voice of His Constituents.
