The past week was an eventful one with gains in supporting staff with premium pay including additional reimbursement for agencies, and further movement toward our health care goals. In this update, we’ll give you short recaps of those gains, touch on the 2020 Census (yes – still trying to increase responses!), and cover federal activity.
Today (April 27), Governor Baker and Secretary Sudders announced major financial support for community residential providers in health and human services. Our community was recognized as well with additional 15% funding for the months of May and June beyond the existing support. We appreciate the administration’s continued responsiveness to our community in the midst of this crisis.
