Assemblymember Shirley Weber: Fully fund Early Start!
A petition you signed was victorious!
Jun 27, 2014 — Dear Early Start Supporters,
Early Start eligibility and federally-required services funding has been restored to pre-2009 levels! This will take effect starting January 1st, 2015. Now, much work needs to be done to educate our community about the restoration of Early Start. We need to spread the word in the community that starting January 1, 2015, infants at risk of a developmental disability, and toddlers between 2 and 3 years of age with delays of 33% in one developmental area, are once again eligible for Early Start's life-changing services.
And we will also be bringing our advocacy to the work of the upcoming task force to ensure that the cost-based budget needs of service providers and regional centers are heard! For those of you who signed this petition and opted in to future emails, in coming months, we'll be back in touch. And if you want to join the list, please sign up at http://eepurl.com/WkTHP
Together, we have accomplished so much. And together, we will accomplish so much more!
