NATIONAL ADVOCACY UPDATES
The Money Follows the Person (MFP) program, which helps get people with disabilities out of institutions and back in their homes, needs to be made permanent. So do important protections for Medicaid eligibility.
When it comes to opportunities for work after SCI/D, there is some positive news on the horizon. With the job market expanding and US unemployment rates at a low, it is a good climate for individuals with disabilities to return to work.
