    URGENT REQUEST - Contact U.S. Senator Charles Schumer ASAP!

    July 22, 2021 -- There is talk of slashing the $400 billion projected funding for Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) to only $150 billion. This is crucial funding that directly impacts the programs and services People Inc. provides. U.S. Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer is in the key position to make sure that the $400 billion for HCBS remains at that level of funding. He is New York’s senior Senator and it’s important that we all - people we support, families and employees - reach out to his office immediately to advocate on behalf of the HCBS funding. Thank you to everyone who has already reached out to support this important effort. If you have not contacted Senator Schumer, fill out this easy-to-use form  that includes a message you can personalize. Senator Schumer also pays close attention to Twitter and we’re inviting everyone to make their voices heard on this social media platform as well. Here is a suggested Tweet: @SenSchumer Home & Community Based Services are key to ensuring ppl with disabilities are included in the community. #COVID19 exacerbated a long-standing crisis in recruiting/retaining direct care workers. Ensure all $400B proposed by Biden stay in the reconciliation package. Additionally, you can email the senator using this online form . Here is a suggested message: Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) are key to ensuring people with disabilities are included in the community, but the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated a long-standing crisis in recruiting/retaining direct care workers. Senator Schumer, please ensure that all $400B proposed by President Biden is included in the reconciliation package. HCBS NEEDS ALL $400B and we need YOUR HELP to make it a reality. Thank you also for your efforts to TWEET, CALL and SEND personal Emails TODAY (or over the next few days)! Together, we can push for this vital funding!
