An Historic Victory for California's Developmental Disabilities Community
Thanks to everyone who supported our advocacy campaign this year, the Governor and members of the Legislature received more than 13,000 emails, calls and tweets urging them to pass a budget plan that would build back the foundation of disability services and close the $1.4 billion funding gap to California’s disability system. OUR VOICES WERE HEARD!
The Governor signed a budget for fiscal year 2021-22 that aims to stabilize the developmental disabilities system with an investment of $2 billion over the next five years. While this budget was a major victory for the IDD Community, we must continue to be vigilant and ready to protect this historic investment in disability services in the coming years as the economy fluctuates.
