What The Arc Is Doing
In order to meet this national challenge, the federal government must take the lead in developing a coordinated, comprehensive approach to LTSS.
Our Policy Goals
The Arc’s Public Policy Goals include many recommendations on how to expand, modernize, and, where appropriate, maintain national policies that provide individualized supports to better meet the needs of people with IDD in a person-centered manner. In order to meet this national challenge, the federal government must take the lead in developing a coordinated, comprehensive approach to long-term supports and services.
Our Coalition Work
The CCD LTSS Task Force, which The Arc co-chairs, works with Congress and the Health and Human Services Administration to support the expansion of LTSS and opposes efforts to repeal, weaken, or block implementation of relevant LTSS provisions.
