Governor John Carney presented his Fiscal Year 2023 budget recommendations to the General Assembly and the state’s citizens on January 27th. A.N.D.’s Executive Director Thomas Cook responded with a press release that requests increased funding of I/DD and SUD services. Cook also noted that more work needs to be done to rebuild the human services infrastructure to address workforce shortages and other long-standing issues. A.N.D. urges family members and advocates to write to the governor and their state senators and representatives asking that I/DD and SUD services be fully funded in the FY 2023 budget.
