New federal funding from the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) for Wisconsin must be used to improve Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) for people with disabilities and older adults in Family Care, IRIS, PACE and Partnership. The Department of Health Services (DHS) has pledged a portion of these funds in grants to providers to improve programs that support people with intellectual, developmental, and other significant disabilities to find and retain work in competitive integrated employment.

Please read the proposed letter of support and indicate whether you will sign your organization (provider sign on only) in support. The letter with all signees listed will be sent to leadership at DHS. You will receive a final copy of the letter if you provide contact information.

You can read a copy of the letter here.
