On Monday, February 12, 2018, join CDPAANYS and the New York State Association on Independent Living (NYAIL) in Albany for Legislative Day

New York State is facing a $4 BILLION budget deficit this year. There is talk of drastic reductions in funding being made to CDPA and other important services. Your participation in this fight is more important than ever! 

Legislative Day is your chance to meet with your elected officials in the Assembly and Senate and tell them what they need to do to save Consumer Directed Personal Assistance and their constituents’ right to live freely in the community.

CDPAANYS will be distributing our official 2018 Legislative Agenda and other materials in the near future. Scholarships will be available to eligible applicants to help pay for travel.

We hope to see you on February 12. Please save the date!
