2020 Case for Inclusion
UCP National and ANCOR Foundation released the 2020 Case for Inclusion report earlier this month. This is the most comprehensive assessment available of how well programs in all 50 states and the District of Columbia are serving people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Published regularly since 2006, the Case for Inclusion assesses 58 measures indicating how well state programs are supporting people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). These 58 measures span seven key issue areas: 1) Addressing a Workforce in Crisis, 2) Keeping Families Together, 3) Promoting Independence, 4) Promoting Productivity, 5) Reaching Those in Need, 6) Serving at a Reasonable Cost and 7) Tracking Health, Safety & Quality of Life. You can download the report and/or explore the interactive website that allows you to look up specific data by state or issue.
