Long Term Services and Supports Task Force
CCD Statement on Recent Long-Term Services & Supports Financing Proposals
In early 2016, several bipartisan and nonpartisan organizations, including the Bipartisan Policy Center and the Long-Term Care Financing Collaborative, released reports on a path forward for future financing of our nation’s long-term care needs. The problem is clear: while our nation is aging and people are living longer with disabilities and chronic conditions, we lack a coherent plan on how to provide for their care and supports.

Transportation Task Force
CCD Transportation TF Code of Participation
It is the policy of the Transportation Task Force to express its policy positions through the use of sign-ons for letters, comments, statements for the record, and testimony when possible, feasible and desirable. Sign-on letters demonstrate the breadth of support the position has within the Task Force and within the disability community so they are the preferred method of communicating the Task Force positions to the public.
