Join the Fight to Protect and Advance Medicaid

10 million Americans with disabilities rely on Medicaid for critical services that enable them to live and participate in the community.

Current Issues

Update: March 27, 2020

Congress has now passed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act), which took some important steps to address the coronavirus pandemic and included some disability community priorities, but many critical priorities were not included. We need Congress to do more and will continue advocating for future Congressional responses to this crisis to meet the needs of people with disabilities. More on the passage of the bill and what you can do now to advocate for disability priorities to be included in the COVID-19 response can be found here.

For more on what was and was not included in the CARES Act, check out the list we’ve put together here, which we will continue to update as we review the final bill and for more on the federal response to the COVID-19 crisis and its impact on people with disabilities, visit our COVID-19 webpage.
