      DISABILITY INTEGRATION ACT 

      The Americans with Disabilities Act took hard work to pass. With attacks on ADA growing, we know there is much work to do if people with disabilities are going to live in the community rather than be forced into nursing facilities and other institutions. To assure that people with disabilities have a real choice to avoid or leave institutional placement, ADAPT is asking both Houses of Congress to pass the Disability Integration Act. 

      The proposed legislation establishes statutory civil rights language - comparable to the ADA - which requires states to change their policies, provide community-based services first, and offer HCBS to people currently in institutions.
