PLEASE TAKE ACTION! Show Support for the Legislature's Budget Plan to Build Back the Foundation of Disability Services

THE TIME TO ACT IS NOW!

Tell Governor Newsom to Support a Budget Plan to Build Back the Foundation of Disability Services

The next few days are critical as the Senate and Assembly will be negotiating with the Newsom Administration asking them to accept their budget proposal to invest in closing a $1.4 Billion funding gap over the next three years. The funding shortfall was identified by the state in a 2018 rate study of the disability system - before the pandemic. The COVID-19 crisis only made this problem worse, with unprecedented staffing shortages and program closures.

CALIFORNIANS WITH DISABILITIES NEED GOVERNOR NEWSOM TO SUPPORT AN HISTORIC PLAN FOR STRENGTHENING DISABILITY SERVICES AND SUPPORTS

Ask Governor Newsom to partner with the Legislature and approve their plan that will address the funding gap, protect the health, safety and wellbeing of Californians with disabilities, and make the investments needed to: 

  • Improve service access and quality
  • Stabilize the workforce crisis through improved wages
  • Advance community inclusion through employment programs
  • Support opportunities for adults with disabilities to live independently
