Seeking Parity for ICFs in the Build Back Better Reconciliation Bill
VOR and its peer organizations have been reaching out to Members of Congress to support parity for ICFs in the Build Back Better Reconciliation Bill that is being drafted and likely to be introduced shortly after Labor Day, 2021. We ask your help in reaching out to ensure that all people with I/DD receive comparable increases in funding, and that and all of the Direct Support Professionals who work with people with I/DD receive increases in pay and career-path training.
In addition to VOR's Action Alert of Sept. 2, 2021, we are asking our members to write letters to Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR) and Representative Frank Pallone, Jr. (D-NJ-06) asking for their support.
