Strengthening the Home and Community-Based Ecosystem
Join the National Council on Disability on January 26, 12-3 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (EST) for a virtual, two-part policy roundtable on strengthening the home- and community-based ecosystem, with a focus on the direct care workforce and affordable, accessible housing.
NCD is hosting this roundtable to provide a briefing of the major findings and recommendations from the agency’s recent Strengthening the HCBS Ecosystem: Responding to Dangers of Congregate Settings during COVID-19 report and to share its vision for a “community living bias” in place of an institutional bias. The roundtable will be hosted virtually and includes invited perspectives from consumers, advocates, litigators, and senators of state and federal government.
