President Signs Autism CARES Act into Law

Share this page

Following the passage of the Autism CARES Act two weeks ago, President Trump signed the bill into law last week. The bill renews funding for autism research, including on supports and services for people with autism. ANCOR successfully led coalition efforts this summer requesting more self-advocates on the Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee (IACC). The IACC provision is included in the legislation so as to bring added attention to the needs of people with autism across the lifespan.
