VOR – Speaking out for People with Intellectual & Developmental Disabilities
Introducing VOR, an organization whose mission is to advocate for high quality care and human rights for all people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD).
VOR is legislating to “Please Amend the American Rescue Act to Include ALL People with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities”
Congress is currently working on the American Rescue Act, a $1.9 Billion package that includes, among other items, a provision to grant additional funding to Home and Community Based Services for people with I/DD.
VOR is asking that this funding be given to all people with I/DD, regardless of their setting or the funding stream that pays for their services. We urge Congress to reject choosing winners and losers among people with intellectual disabilities and, instead, to provide relief equitably to all of them.
