The Blog is Back

The Arc of North Carolina Policy blog has not been updated recently as we all were working feverishly during the last two weeks of session.  We missed you all and hope you missed us too.
This session was short, hectic, and very rewarding.  People with disabilities and their family members benefitted greatly by the leadership of strong advocates in both the House and Senate.  We appreciate their efforts.  Thanks to their work and your strong voices we will see the opening of new CAP Tier 1 Support Waiver slots, funding for housing options for people with developmental disabilities, funding to support children with disabilities in our public schools and funding to assist families with medically fragile children.  This session supported the vision of many North Carolina advocates that people with developmental disabilities have the right to chose where they want to live, work and grow.  Thank you advocates and thank you legislative leaders.  

Later this week we will have a full legislative update.
