DSPs Are One Step Closer to Being Recognized as an Occupation/Profession!

March 21, 2024

Great news last evening from ANCOR:


“We have great news to share about the bill to create a standard occupational classification (SOC) for direct support professionals: Tonight the Senate passed S. 1332, the Recognizing the Role of Direct Support Professionals, by unanimous consent. You can watch the clip here. With the Senate’s passage, we are one step closer to creating a SOC for DSPs!



This moment of celebration is thanks to all of your tireless advocacy in support of direct support professionals. Now that the bill has passed the Senate, it moves to the House of Representatives for passage. We encourage you to write to your representatives and tell them why recognizing DSPs is so important. Together we can see this bill get across the finish line this Congress!”
