Washington Post Reports Urgent Funding Needs of DD Providers

August 06, 2020

In an article published this afternoon, the Washington Post reported on the letter recently sent by the Northern Virginia Coalition of Providers to Governor Ralph Northam which described the urgent need to “reallot” the funds approved by the General Assembly but withheld during the Session in April because of the uncertainty of the revenue forecast.

Karen Smith, The Arc of Prince William, Joanne Aceto, MVLE and Sean McGinnis, Hartwood Foundation were interviewed for the article and clearly made the points that the rate “refresh” along with some version of retention payments to support Day Services are urgently needed.
