MONDAY, JANUARY 26, 2015: The Arc is OPEN with all programs observing normal business hours.


The Search is On!

The Arc Board of Directors has begun its search for a new executive director to replace Mac Ramsey who will be retiring in June after 31 years on the job. The Board has contracted with Raffa, an executive search firm that specializes in the nonprofit sector. This past fall, Raffa assisted the board and staff in developing a transition plan and an executive director position profile. Resumes are now being accepted with the goal of having the new executive director on board by late spring. For further information follow this link.


Long-Awaited ABLE Act Signed into Law

ABLE

On December 19th, President Obama signed into law The Achieving a Better Life Experience Act of 2013, better known as The ABLE Act.

This Act amends Section 529 of the Internal Revenue Service Code of 1986 to create tax-free savings accounts for individuals with disabilities. The bill aims to ease financial strains faced by individuals with disabilities by making tax-free savings accounts available to cover qualified expenses such as education, housing, and transportation. The Able Act will supplement, but not supplant, benefits provided through private insurances, the Medicaid program, the supplemental security income program, the beneficiary's employment, and other sources.

An ABLE account can fund a variety of essential expenses for individuals, including medical and dental care, education, community-based supports, employment training, assistive technology, housing, and transportation. The ABLE Act provides individuals with disabilities the same types of flexible savings tools that all other Americans have through college savings accounts, health savings accounts, and individual retirement accounts. The legislation also contains Medicaid fraud protection against abuse and a Medicaid pay-back provision when the beneficiary passes away. It will eliminate barriers to work and saving by preventing dollars saved through ABLE accounts from counting against an individual's eligibility for any federal benefits program.


Write the County Executive

Rushern Baker Please take a moment and write County Executive Rushern Baker and ask him to place $2 million in the county's Fiscal Year 2016 to supplement the wages of direct care professionals working with individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. It's time for our County to help assure that our direct support workers are adequately compensated for the valuable services they provide to Prince Georgian's with disabilities. For background information, go to our fair wages information page.
