Funds Reduce Fla. Wait List for Services

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — More than half of Floridians with disabilities will soon be moved off a waiting list to access services.Earlier this year, the Legislature approved $36 million to move approximately 750 individuals off the waiting list and start receiving services. But Gov. Rick Scott said Thursday he now expects those funds to reach approximately 1,600 people. The Agency for Persons with Disabilities developed criteria to enroll individuals with the greatest needs.
