An open letter to the U.S. House of Representatives

Please fund home and community based services

7 so far! Let’s get to 10 signers!

I am writing to urge you to make sure dedicated funding for Medicaid home and community based services is included in the final COVID-19 package. It is critical that you to include the needs of disabled people in this package. We have seen rampant rates of infection and death in congregate settings. Many disabled people rely on HCBS to live in their own homes, but people are struggling to stay there. Without more funding, many more people will be forced into nursing homes and other congregate settings, where they will be at much greater risk of catching COVID-19. The need for dedicated HCBS funding is more urgent than ever. Thank you for your time. I hope I can count on you to protect your disabled constituents during the COVID-19 pandemic.
