The New York State Division of Budget (DOB) has directed state agencies to withhold 20% of funding to providers for certain non-Medicaid programs. Please contact Gov. Andrew Cuomo by telephone to let him know you oppose the withholds because of the potential devastating impact this action will have on the lives of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. To contact the Governor’s Office, call (518) 474-1041 and leave this message: “The recent directive by the Division of Budget to withhold 20% of State-only, non-Medicaid funds to providers will potentially hurt people with intellectual and developmental disabilities by putting certain necessary services in jeopardy. Please direct DOB to reverse the decision on the 20% withhold. Thank you, Governor.”
