For Valentine's Day, Tell the Governor You  ❤ Love ❤ Your DSPs & Your Services!

Governor Murphy is working now on the Fiscal Year(FY) 2020 State Budget and it's critical for him to hear from you about the impact of services and Direct Support Professionals in your life. We need the Governor to prioritize the service delivery system for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families and only your voice can make that happen.


We are asking for the following funding items in the FY20 Budget:

  • $36 million state dollars, which will receive a Medicaid match, to increase wages for Direct Support Professionals by $1.25 an hour
  • An increased rate for day program so individuals with I/DD who attend these programs will continue to receive the services they need

Sign it, and if you can, personalize it with a message. Mail the card to the Governor at the following address:

The Honorable Phil Murphy

Office of Governor

PO Box 001 

Trenton, NJ 08625 


With these simple steps, we can illustrate to the Governor just how important services and Direct Support Professionals are to people with I/DD and their families living in New Jersey.

Thank you for your ongoing support. Our advocacy is always stronger when we stand together.
