As you may be aware, the DHS Division of Developmental Disabilities and the state are facing a funding shortfall.  Click on to this link to read Director Casey’s letter to providers .
This is not good. I did not want to send this letter to you too quickly. I wanted our Exec’s to get this letter first directly from Director Casey.
The Arc is working with other statewide advocates to alleviate this problem. Hopefully this issue will be corrected before the end of the legislative session. Also be advised that there is about $145 million in the Governor’s budget that will bring providers payments to 30 days after submission.
