We are hearing that there is talk of shrinking the $400 Billion for HCBS (Home and Community Based services for individuals with disabilities) to only $150billion . Sen. Schumer needs to hear from EVERYONE that HCBS NEEDS ALL $400B.
As we all know, U.S. Senate Majority Leader, Charles Schumer, is in the key position to make sure that the $400 billion for HCBS remains at that level of funding. Don’t forget, Senator Schumer is New York’s senior Senator and it’s important that we reach out to Senator Schumer’s Office to advocate on behalf of the HCBS funding. Please take a moment to reach out to Senator Schumer and his office.
Here’s Your Message on Twitter @SenSchumer (we understand the Senator pays close attention to Twitter):
@SenSchumer Home & Community Based Services are key to ensuring ppl with disabilities are included in the community. #COVID19
exacerbated a long-standing crisis in recruiting/retaining direct care workers. Ensure all $400B proposed by Biden stay in the reconciliation package.
