UCP Advocacy Efforts

UCP is asking PA legislators to appropriate sufficient funds to rebuild and strengthen capacity in community services programs for individuals with disabilities by increasing workers’ wages and providers’ rates.


UCP of Pennsylvania member agencies (of which UCP Central PA is one), have participated in a public/private partnership with the state to serve individuals in the community dating back to 1966 for intellectual disability services and 1986 for services to people with physical disabilities.

The provider community and its essential direct service workers are facing extreme economic stress that threatens the stability and viability of the programs that individuals and their families rely on. The system must be healthy in order to serve current individuals and to be able to expand to serve thousands more people in need of these vital community services.

We are asking PA legislators to appropriate sufficient funds to rebuild and strengthen capacity in community services programs for individuals with disabilities by increasing workers’ wages and providers’ rates.

We encourage you to view the following documents for more information on this critical issue:
