Alliance Supports END THE WAIT (2020 Bill Concept)

A proposal to ensure access to quality services and enhance IDD system capacity

3,000 people with intellectual and development disabilities in Colorado are currently waiting for comprehensive disability services! To advance the goal of eliminating the waiting list while ensuring system capacity, we are asking the General Assembly to:

  • Commit to a 6-year, phased-in elimination of the DD waiting list. In each of the next six years, Colorado
    should enroll 500 people (about one-sixth of the individuals) on the DD waiver’s "As Soon As Available"
    waiting list; and

  • Tie future increases to the Consumer Price Index (aka standard inflation measure) to ensure the availability of providers to serve new and existing enrollees.


Please join us in helping to END THE WAIT! Learn more about the 2020 legislative effort and how you can help at or contact us at
