The undersigned members of the Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities (CCD) and allies write in support of your efforts to include adult dependents in stimulus payments.

CCD MW Sign On Letter
The undersigned members of the CCD Long Term Services and Supports (LTSS) Task Force strongly urge you to ensure that any proposal to increase the minimum wage includes commensurate Medicaid funding for rate increases to cover those additional labor costs. In addition, we ask that you form a commission that includes people with disabilities and direct care workers to make certain that home and community-based services (HCBS) for people with disabilities and aging adults remain steadfast, and so that a workforce already in crisis does not face greater challenges.
