Advocacy Toolkit for FY 2021/22 Budget Advocacy

In his budget proposal for the 2021/22 Fiscal Year, Governor Wolf once again did not include any funding to increase rates for Intellectual Disability/Autism providers or raise wages for Direct Support Professionals, despite proposing an 11% increase overall in the budget.
Individuals with ID/A, their families, and the DSPs who support them have been struggling because of chronic under funding of the ID/A system for years and continue to struggle with the added burden of the pandemic.
