It's Time to Advocate for People with Disabilities & Their Staff!

Please help us advocate for an increase for Direct Support Professional wages and compensation from the State of Utah! You can email the members of the Social Services Appropriation Committee (below) and let them know you support the following requests from the Utah Association of Community Services (UACS):

• $3,000,000 for the final year of the initiative to raise Direct Support Professional Wages • $350,000 ongoing for the MTP (transportation) rate • Funding for the waiting list for services from the Division of Services for People with Disabilities

Thank you!!!
