URGENT ALERT: Tell Gov. Cuomo to fund minimum wage for CDPA

By Long Island Center. Filed in Advocacy, CDPA, Disability, Disability Rights, Healthcare, In the Loop  |   

Consumer Directed Personal Assistance (CDPA) programs are a lifeline for countless people with disabilities and senior citizens.  As a homecare option, CDPA can mean the difference between living freely and productively in the community and simply existing in an institution.

As the NYS minimum wage increase phases-in across the state, CDPA programs are at an increasing risk because providers cannot afford to operate without funding to support the required wage rate.

If you are a person with a disability or you know someone with a disability, please respond to this CDPAANYS Action Alert today.  For all the background a quick and easy way to tell Gov. Cuomo and your Representatives to fund the minimum wage for CDPA, click here.
