1. New York will not be able to broadly implement CFC and people with all types of disabilities - whether or not they need assistance with health-related tasks - will not have a right to receive services and supports in the community.
2. People with dementia - who currently have extremely limited community-based options in New York - will continue to be forced into nursing facilities.
3. Families of individuals with developmental disabilities who would have received services and supports under CFC will continue to languish on waiting lists for assistance.
4. People with mental health disabilities will not receive CFC services and supports needed to be successful in living independently and will continue to remain in - or cycle in and out of - expensive institutional settings.
5. New York State won't generate approximately $340 million a year in extra federal funds from the enhanced federal funding associated with CFC.
