Governor Pledges Support for Children with Disabilities

Today Governor Walker announced good news for children with disabilities across Wisconsin. The Governor signaled that his budget will commit more than $39 million to support families raising children with significant disabilities, effectively eliminating the current waiting list for critical long term support services.

On behalf of 2200 children with disabilities still awaiting services designed to support their development and meet their potential, Disability Rights Wisconsin raises its voice in thanks for the Governor’s significant commitment. The Governor’s budget initiative will have a positive effect on the lives of thousands of Wisconsin children and fulfill a goal sought by disability advocates for more than a decade.
