Tell Congress to Pass the Better Care Better Jobs Act, a Historic Investment in Disability Services
For years, the service system that people with intellectual and development disabilities (IDD) and their families rely on, Medicaid, has needed an update. The COVID-19 pandemic has magnified these problems and exposed the cracks and gaps in the care infrastructure when it comes to supporting people with disabilities.
Now, following the Administration’s proposals, Congress has introduced the Better Care Better Jobs Act. This bill includes a long-overdue investment in the disability service system as part of a COVID-19 economic recovery to support care for Medicaid recipients and create more and better jobs for the workforce that provides that care.
We must ask Members of Congress to enact legislation that lives up to this plan and do more for people with disabilities, their families, and the direct care workforce.
