Powerful Networks, Powerful Results
 
As a result of our aggressive lobby and grassroots advocacy campaign, ACCSES has fought to advance disability policy to ensure that ALL people with disabilities continue to enjoy options and opportunities for where they choose to live, work, and play.  ACCSES is the "tip of the spear" -- fighting for the rights of the people with disabilities you serve every day, and their families.
 


Recent Outcomes of ACCSES in Action
 
  • Successfully fought efforts to eliminate worker protections under Section 14(c)
  • Ensured state flexibility and a full array of choices were preserved in the new Home and Community-Based Services regulations
  • Positively influenced the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to adopt principles and best practices in the proposed rules on Medicaid managed care plans
  • Enhanced work opportunities for people with disabilities during the drafting of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act
  • Provided technical assistance to state networks to help influence state-based systems transformation initiatives driven by Federal policy
 
Key Issue Areas
