Community Partners

The Arc of Florida continues its statewide advocacy through its chapters, colleagues, and community partners.

The Arc of Florida’s legislative priorities for the 2024 Legislative Session:
• Increase iBudget Waiver funding for recurring operational and labor costs to offset increases and inflation.
• The APD iBudget Waiver should be added to the Social Services Estimating Conference (SSEC) so there is an independent body determining need to sustain the Waiver.
• Reduce the Waiting List for those individuals eligible for iBudget Home and Community-based Waiver Program.
