Critical Programs Supporting People with Disabilities at Stake
On Jan.2,automatic budget cuts from Congress will slash programs that support people with disabilities: Medicaid, special education, employment resources, housing assistance, and more. Nearly $1 billion will be cut from special education alone.
Balancing the budget is important, but services and supports for people with disabilities is not an area to cut. If you agree, send a letter to your representatives now.
More than 50 million Americans live with disability, including millions of children. These cuts would devastate supports like Birth to 3 services and public education funds, as well as the supports that allow adults with disabilities to fully participate in community life.
Don't wait until it's too late - advocate now to preserve programs that support people with disabilities!
