Legislative & Capitol Update

Legislative and Regulatory Priorities 2018

SPADD’s 2018 legislative and regulatory agenda focuses on:

  • A rate increase for Day Services, Supported Employment, and Support Coordination since these supports did not benefit from past rate increases,
  • A Room & Board supplement to mitigate the high cost of housing for Georgians with I/DD,
  • A plan to address workforce development and the critical shortage of qualified direct support professionals,
  • The burden of multiplicative regulatory oversight of I/DD supports, and
  • Georgia’s years-long waiting list for I/DD support funding.
