Defenders of Consumer Directed Personal Assistance in New York State have won an important victory in court. A judge ruled that the Cuomo administration’s proposal to curb and cut funding for this vital home care program should he halted, as it threatens to result in loss of freedom and proper care for thousands of New Yorkers with disabilities. More details will come. For now, this statement and thank you from the Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Association of New York State will suffice:
Thanks to your hard work, the court ruled against gutting funding for our members!— CDPAANYS (@CDPAANYS) October 12, 2019
This means thousands of disabled residents will be able to continue to use this life-saving service.
But the fight’s not over. We must continue to protect CDPA once and for all! #SaveCDPA pic.twitter.com/AlG4lemrFX
