Direct Support Professionals Campaign

During the 2021 session of the Indiana General Assembly, The Arc of Indiana will work to increase wages for direct support professionals (DSPs).

Nearly 18,000 DSPs in Indiana provide critical supports to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). Reimbursement rates have not allowed providers to pay DSPs a competitive, livable wage for many years, leading to widespread, ongoing problems in recruiting and retaining quality staff.

We need DSPs, people with I/DD, and parents, siblings, friends and more who have a person with I/DD in their lives, to share their story with their legislators.
