We need you to call the Governor and your Senator and Assembly members to continue to push the #bFair2DirectCare campaign

We received the following information from COPA  (Coalition of Provider Associations) and wanted to pass it along to you.  This is good news but we need to keep going - we need to make our voices heard and let Albany know how important the #bFair2DirectCare campaign is.

We had some wins in the Assembly and Senate one-house budgets and now we need to CALL CALL CALL to make sure that our priorities make it to the final budget!

For OPWDD

Call the Governor at 518-474-1041 and tell him to include both the Senate and Assembly support of #bFair2DirectCare, and restoration of the COLA (Cost of Living Adjustment) and the Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program (CDPAP) in the final budget!

Call your Senator at 518-455-2800 and your Assembly member at 518-455-4100, thank them and ask for their commitment to support #bFair2DirectCare and the restoration of the COLA and CDPAP in the final budget!
