Here’s our three-point ask:
1) “Stop the Cuts” by canceling a state-imposed funding cut on residential providers this month that will remove $238 million from its statewide system annually;
2) “Raise the Wage” by raising rates over three years to provide DSPs with a living wage; and
3) ”Fund the Future” by instituting a 2 percent annual cost-of-living adjustment – the same type of increase the state gives to other sectors.
