It is that time of year again where we need to ask for your help. We all know how crucial Independent Living Centers like Center for Independence of the Disabled, NY are in communities across the State. We provide a wide array of supports and services that help people be independent and integrated in their communities.
Yet, Governor Cuomo has failed to include a funding increase for Independent Living Centers in his proposed budget over and over again.
Governor Cuomo is developing his 2019-20 Executive Budget proposal, scheduled for next month. The Board of Regents again recommends he include a $5 million increase to the network of ILCs in this year’s budget. Now we have to make sure he follows this recommendation by telling him how important it is to people with disabilities across the State!
ACTION: Email Governor Cuomo. Urge him to include a funding increase of only $5 million to ILCs across New York in his Executive Budget proposal!
