Disability Rights Pennsylvania is ready to set legal and advocacy priorities for fiscal year (FY) 2018. Congress provides Disability Rights Pennsylvania with seven (7) different federal grant programs to protect and advocate for individuals with all disabilities. Congress permits the organization to set priorities to narrow the scope of its work because these resources are not enough to serve everyone in Pennsylvania with a disability.
The organization solicits public input to help guide its priorities. Comments from the public are forwarded to the organization's Board of Directors and Mental Health Advisory Council for review and consideration. The Board of Directors for Disability Rights Pennsylvania provides final review and approval of the priorities.
The deadline for public input is Monday, August 21, 2017.
