House Approves Coronavirus Relief Bill

The House passed the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (H.R.6201). The bill is now being considered in the Senate. The bill includes a 6.2% federal medical assistance percentage increase to support Medicaid funding to the states. There are some provisions that will provide limited paid sick leave for some workers. The Arc staff is working to expand the paid leave provisions and to ensure that other packages include the needs of people with disabilities and the direct professional workforce. Take action today!
