ANCOR’s August Advocacy Challenge – Will You Join Us?

Share this page

Take advantage of Congress being home for its August recess to be advance important I/DD policies while saving time and resources! Under the leadership of ANCOR’s Grassroots Work Group, we are encouraging our members to advocate for three key I/DD issues likely to next gain traction in Congress when it resumes session in the fall.

These are:

  • Renewal of Money Follows the Person
  • Addressing the workforce crisis
  • Increasing eligibility for ABLE accounts.

We built a treasure trove of advocacy resources on these topics (and more!) for you on our newly revamped Digital Advocacy Page – check it out today! In addition to one-pagers, you will find staff contact lists and templates on the page. Ready to act? Here are some ideas to get you started!

P.S. We know EVV and other items may also be on your mind – visit the Digital Advocacy page for additional topics!
