Lanterman Coalition 10 Campaign

The Lanterman Coalition, consisting of the 19 statewide organizations of the California Developmental Services system, is urging the Brown administration to stop the collapse of our system. While state agencies’ budgets are typically adjusted for cost of living, wage, health and benefits increases, the Department of Developmental Services (DDS) system has been seriously hindered without these budget adjustments. As a result, the sustainability of the state’s system to meet the Lanterman promise to people with developmental disabilities is threatened by insufficient funding. Read the letter to Governor Brown here, and see how you can support the Lanterman Coalition.
