Bills will Improve Access to Wisconsin’s Long-Term Care Programs

Madison, WI – The Wisconsin Board for People with Developmental Disabilities (BPDD) strongly supports two bills that will remove the cap on Family Care enrollment.

Senate Bill 380 and Assembly Bill 477 will remove the enrollment cap on Wisconsin’s long-term care programs – including Family Care – and provide people with developmental disabilities access to the programs they need to be independent, productive, and included in all facets of community life.

Beth Swedeen, BPDD’s Executive Director, said, “I want to thank the members of the legislature who support these bills. Wisconsin’s long-term care programs are critical for people with developmental disabilities to be self-determined and included in their community.”

BPDD advocates for the independence and inclusion of people with developmental disabilities in Wisconsin and is dedicated to improving the independence, productivity, and integration of people with developmental disabilities.
