The Ask: Use our action tool to tell your members of Congress to support the Better Care Better Jobs Act by signing on as co-sponsors.

Why It Matters: This legislation is a clear sign that both Congress and the Biden administration are seriously exploring ways to remedy the direct support professional (DSP) workforce crisis. It proposes historic investments to transform and expand the HCBS program, strengthen the DSP workforce, pay ANCOR members sufficient Medicaid reimbursement rates, and improve outcomes for people with disabilities. It is the result of decades of advocacy from disability champions like yourself and creates an unprecedented opportunity to build up an essential disability program. And the timing couldn’t be better—with the DSP workforce facing more recruitment challenges than ever and the disability community still recovering from the pandemic, this legislation is sorely needed.
