GOVERNOR CUOMO SIGNS LEGISLATION TO RESTORE $90 MILLION IN FUNDING TO OPWDD

Funding Vital for Agency’s Mission to Care for New Yorkers with Developmental Disabilities

 

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced the signing of legislation to restore up to $90 million in funding for the Office of People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD). This law amends the executive budget which called for reducing the agency’s budget by $90 million as a result of a $1.1 billion federal reduction in aid. This funding will allow the agency to continue its vital mission to provide critical care to New Yorkers with developmental disabilities while reversing decades of mismanagement and overpayments that resulted in a decline of services to this vulnerable population.
