TELL CONGRESS: Fully Fund Home- and Community-Based Services!
Right now, there are over 820,000 disabled children, adults, and seniors who are stuck on a years-long waiting list for lifesaving home- and community- based care through Medicaid. This is a crisis, and we need full funding to fix it.
Congress just released their proposed budget — and what they’ve put forward is far less than what is needed to meet these urgent needs.
It’s time to fight for full funding for home- and community-based services, which will allow us to:
Clear the waiting listProvide better wages for grossly underpaid caregiversAnd protect disabled Americans from being ripped from their homes and sent to live in unsafe institutions
Take action now to urge Congress to provide full funding for home and community-based services.
