Act Now Current Issues

Update: December 6, 2019

Exciting news about Money Follows the Person (MFP): Today Congress introduced bipartisan legislation to permanently reauthorize MFP! This is the first time there has been a bill to permanently fund this important program that provides states funding to help people with disabilities move from institutions back to their communities.  YOUR advocacy for MFP over the last two years has brought us to this point. The bill still must pass the full Senate and House, and we’ll keep you updated as we continue our advocacy to fund MFP. Read more details and keep updated on MFP here.

Our Mission

10 million people with disabilities rely on Medicaid to live and participate in their communities. Over the past year, Congress attempted, and failed, to pass several different healthcare bills with devastating cuts to Medicaid.  But the fight is not over. Congress may try again to pass significant cuts to Medicaid, whether through the budget or in another healthcare or tax bill.  Federal agencies are also proposing policies that hurt people with disabilities who rely on Medicaid.  We need to continue to educate government leaders about the importance of Medicaid to the lives of people with disabilities.

Our purpose on this website is to help people with disabilities, their families, and advocates/allies understand the impact of the changes proposed by Congress and federal agencies and give them the tools to advocate.

Please contact us if you have questions, suggestions, or additional resources you'd like to see included.
