Florida Stretched to Fiscal Breaking Point

Viewpoint piece from ReneƩ Valletutti, chair of the Florida Developmental Disabilities Council.

Over the past several years, individuals with developmental disabilities and their families have endured extensive reductions and eliminations of needed services due to funding cuts to the Florida Agency for Persons with Disabilities' Developmental Disabilities Home and Community Based Services Waiver budget.
The Florida Developmental Disabilities Council believes that funding for the waiver cannot sustain any further reductions without seriously jeopardizing both the health and safety of individuals with developmental disabilities who rely on these services and the basic infrastructure of the waiver system.
