The "5% Campaign" is a nonpartisan coalition working together to ask state legislators for a 5% rate increase for community-based services for people with disabilities and older adults in 2014. A decade of stagnation has produced significant challenges - a 5% rate increase to community-based services is critical to move Minnesota back on track.
People with disabilities, older adults, caregivers, workers, providers, family members, and advocates throughout Minnesota have joined together in this major statewide campaign. The lives that many people with disabilities and older adults build for themselves depend on state funding.
These critical supports allow people to be more independent by providing staffing and transportation so that people can be active employees and volunteers in their communities, fostering skill development, ensuring health and safety, and more.

Minnesotans with disabilities and older adults need to be a priority during the 2014 legislative session.
I support a 5% rate increase for community-based services to uphold and invest in the commitment that life in the community is the first and best option for people with disabilities and older Minnesotans, as well as their families, workers and our state.
