Congress is currently negotiating its budget reconciliation bill, and the House version of the bill includes $190 billion for the HCBS program. This amount falls far short of the promise President Biden made in his American Jobs Plan to invest $400 billion in HCBS. While ANCOR celebrates this historic investment in the HCBS program, the level of financing is insufficient to sustain access and stabilize the direct care workforce. The dire conditions facing our nation’s direct care workforce demand a greater investment.
Participate in ANCOR’s action alert to ask your member of Congress include sufficient funding for HCBS in the budget reconciliation bill.
As an INArf Member, we plan to do our part in taking action and passing along this information. Please share with anyone who may be interested or affected by this reconciliation bill.
