Funding the IDD System

Last year, the Legislature approved a five-year investment in the IDD system to fully implement the 2019 Burns and Associates Rate Study, which verified the system was underfunded each year by $1.8Billion.

The current five-year schedule risks a “too little too late” scenario for service accessibility and quality. Governor Newsom should accelerate the phase in by one year, address the workforce crisis, and improve access to critical services NOW.

As many of us know, there is a shortage of providers to work with our disability community.

Click this link https://p2a.co/yztglk0 to send a letter to Governor Newsom and ask him to accelerate the DDS rate increases to help ensure the essential safety net of services is available to meet the unique needs of each Californian with a developmental disability.
