Message from the ARC:
We are almost ONE YEAR into a pandemic that has disproportionally impacted people with disabilities. Congress must include people with disabilities, their families, and the direct support professional workforce in COVID-19 pandemic relief legislation.
Your Members of Congress once again must hear from you so that our critical needs are included in the first COVID relief package of the new Congress.
Tell Congress #WeAreEssential and that these key provisions MUST be included in the next coronavirus relief bill:
Dedicated funding for Medicaid home and community-based services (HCBS)
Personal protective equipment (PPE) for direct support professionals
Paid leave for all caregivers
Economic impact payments for all people with disabilities
