Share this page

On Thursday, January 10, the ANCOR Foundation and United Cerebral Palsy (UCP) launched their joint scorecard on I/DD supports in the states, The Case for Inclusion, at our event in Washington, DC. The event featured community advocates, providers, Congressional staff and the media. This has brought serious attention from national and state news outlets to the DSP workforce crisis, the importance of inclusion, and on how states are addressing these challenges. This includes coverage from Forbes, Disability Scoop and Politico Pro. ANCOR encourages our members to visit to leverage key resources for your advocacy efforts. In addition to the report and news stories, you will find case studies, printable state by state fact sheets, and outreach toolkits, including template press releases.

Stay tuned – we will soon announce a webinar for ANCOR members with the lead researcher of the report to answer your questions on the data and share tips on how to best make the case for inclusion!
