What is the Disability Integration Act?
The Disability Integration Act (DIA) is civil rights legislation, introduced by Senator Schumer & Representative Sensenbrenner to address the fundamental issue that people who need Long Term Services and Supports (LTSS) are forced into institutions and losing their basic civil rights. The legislation (S.910/HR2472) builds on the 25 years of work that ADAPT has done to end the institutional bias and provide seniors and people with disabilities home and community-based services (HCBS) as an alternative to institutionalization. It is the next step in our national advocacy after securing the Community First Choice (CFC) option. Learn More!!
