The budget that passed the House last night, SB 2048, Amendment 2, funding levels are generally at the current level of services and supports. Whether this bill passes in the Senate or is vetoed by the Governor remains to be seen.

Here is a listing of the grants for the Division of Developmental Disabilities funded for FY 2017:

  • The Autism Program                   $4,300,000
  • Respite Care                               $8,778,000
  • Best Buddies                               $977,500
  • The Arc Life Span                       $471,400
  • Dental                                         $986,000
  • Epilepsy Services                        $2,075,000
  • Out of State residential                $500,000

Certainly there will be more to come!
