In response to Beth's question, send this again because it looked like the attachment size may have held up the message-. This is from page 153-154 of the ACL Budget Justification

Hi Beth,

 No funding is requested for State Councils on Developmental Disabilities (SCDD), whose functions would be folded into the proposed new Partnerships for Innovation, Inclusion and Independence to provide a statewide cross-disability partnership supporting individuals with all types of significant disabilities in each state and territory.

 $38,660,000 for Developmental Disability Protection and Advocacy systems, maintaining the annualized FY 2017 Continuing Resolution level. Protection and Advocacy systems in each state and territory protect the legal and human rights of all people with developmental disabilities, and have the authority to pursue legal, administrative and other appropriate remedies or approaches, including the authority to investigate incidents of abuse and neglect.

 $38,546,000 for University Centers for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (UCEDDs), maintaining the annualized FY 2017 Continuing Resolution level. UCEDDs in each state and territory undertake interdisciplinary pre-service training, community services, research, and information dissemination activities that promote opportunities for people with developmental disabilities to exercise self-determination and to be independent, productive, integrated, and included in the community.

 $7,600,000 for Projects of National Significance, a reduction of -$2,380,990 below the annualized FY 2017 Continuing Resolution level. Projects of National Significance fund grants, cooperative agreements, and contracts to explore innovative opportunities for individuals with developmental disabilities to directly and fully contribute to, and participate in, all facets of community life.

 $78,156,000 for Independent Living, a reduction of -$22,834,651 below the annualized FY 2017 Continuing Resolution level. No funding is requested for Independent Living State Grants that support State Independent Living Councils (SILC), whose functions would be folded into the proposed new Partnerships for Innovation, Inclusion and Independence to provide a statewide cross-disability partnership supporting individuals with all types of significant disabilities in each state and territory. The request maintains the current funding level for Centers for Independent Living, which provides grants for consumer controlled, community-based, cross-disability, private nonprofit agencies that are designed and operated within a local community by individuals with significant disabilities and provide an array of independent living services.

Hi all, can anyone get me the original link to the budget language that zeros us out? I have people questioning its veracity and amid all the other emails I've lost the original language.
