How you can urge our leaders to reinstate the $168M cut from IDD services

Tell Governor Shapiro and other key lawmakers and their staff your story about how gaps in services have affected someone you care about.  Urge them to re-instate the $168M cut from community-based waivers for adults with IDD. Consider also asking them to take steps to make sure that future decisions are based on the right information with input from the right people.
