The initiative passed in the State Budget!

Inspire New York: Bill S6631

Inspire New York is a bold plan that will give a tax credit to any employer in the state that hires individuals who have a developmental disability who are either unemployed or a current employee of a sheltered workshop.

I need your help and ask that you sign this petition to tell Albany that Inspire New York needs to pass!

      I work with adults who are developmentally disabled. I have been repeatedly impressed by how much they wish to be employed. Anything we can do to make this happen will benefit them, their families and their employers.
