Past cuts in funding for some Georgians with developmental disabilities have threatened their safety net, says a state organization that provides community services to these people.

Now the fear is that upcoming state rate changes may drive some service providers out of business, says Ralph Herndon, president of the Georgia Association of Community Service Boards.

“If providers are forced to close their doors, how will people with developmental disabilities have a meaningful life?’’ writes Herndon in a new GHN Commentary piece.

Here’s a link to Herndon’s Commentary.
