Alliance Public Policy Priorities


The Alliance Board of Directors adopted the five-year public policy agenda for 2021-2025. This agenda is not an exhaustive list of issues important to Alliance. Rather, it includes the high-priority goals we have identified as important to achieve in the next five years through a variety of mechanisms, including legislation, regulation, and waiver amendments. The priorities are divided into ongoing priorities and our five-year strategic priority areas. Alliance will engage with our partners in the disability community as well as other interested stakeholders to fulfill the goals of this policy agenda.
