Speaking out for People with
 Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities


Previous Actions

Ask Senate Budget Committee to Support Choice

Tell the Senate Budget Committee to support choice and prohibit the use of federal funds for deinstitutionalization!

The federal government should not support the use of federal dollars by federal agencies to aggressively pursue the closure of licensed facility-based homes providing good care to people with I/DD, without any regard for the input or insights of the affected residents and their families; and without regard to well-documented tragedies.

Take action contact the Senate Budget Committee today.

Medicaid at Risk: Congress needs to hear from you!

For the vast majority of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (ID/DD), Medicaid is their only resource for accessing health care, assistance and residential supports. For these Americans, the Medicaid program ensures maximum independence and daily happiness. 
Congressional proposals to cut or cap ("block grant") Medicaid will not save money.
