Gov. Carney to Present FY 2020 Budget Recommendations to the Delaware General Assembly

In January 2019, Gov. Carney will present budget recommendations to the Delaware General Assembly. Advocates have asked him to include full funding for the McNesby Act to support Direct Support Professionals (DSPs):

  • Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) serving some of the most vulnerable citizens in Delaware need the additional pay.
  • Funding for this pay will become available only if the budget includes The Whole 9, which advocates requested earlier this year.
  • These state funds will help stabilize the system of services to adults with I/DD, which is constantly under stress because of staff turnover.
