Take Action! Help stop the workforce crisis
impacting Californians with IDD

On Friday, May 13th, the Governor released his revised State Budget for Fiscal Year 2023 (May Revision). Given the forecasted $97 billion budget surplus, the many significant needs of the developmental disabilities system continue to be overlooked and unaddressed. This needs to change!

The Governor did not include the acceleration of the rate increases in his revised budget, which is desperately needed to help address inflationary challenges faced by service providers.

Last year the Legislature finally approved a five-year plan to begin restoring a portion of the funding gap to California’s developmental disability system. Unfortunately, the bulk of the long overdue funding won’t be received for another two to three years!

With a projected budget surplus of nearly $100 billion, California has the ability to accelerate the five-year funding schedule by 12 months now!

By voicing your support and joining the campaign to accelerate the rate increases, you can make a difference. Urge Governor Newsom and your local representatives to include the rate increases in California’s budget.
