Yesterday, I heard that ACC was planning to cut funding for home modifications (such as ramps, grab bar, widening doorways, etc) and vehicle modifications (like hand-controls, lifts, ramps, etc) for newly injured individuals. This is part of the wider cuts they are imposing on the system. Some of these cuts make sense (such as stopping payment when the injury is self-inflicted rather than an accident). Others are not so logical. But this particular cut has outraged me.
I was told yesterday that the State of Illinois has cut funding for an important programme for people with disabilities. This programme is known as the "PA Program", or "Home Services Program". This news devastated me, and angered me. My colleagues and I worked so hard to make that programme work.
