NCIL Members march to the Capitol 2013The deal that averted the “fiscal cliff” created a new Commission to look at long term services and supports.  The Commission will be charged with developing a plan for the establishment, implementation, and financing of a comprehensive, coordinated, and high-quality system that ensures the availability of long-term services and supports for individuals in need of such services and supports.  The Commission will be made up of 15 people appointed by the President and Congressional leaders and are supposed to represent the broad range of groups affected by or interested in these issues.

Take action now to tell the President and Leaders in Congress that ADAPT and NCIL need to be represented at the table!
