Call-to-Action for the State's 2021 Budget


Are you a Vermonter with a disability? Are you worried about how the State’s 2021 Budget might affect you? Lawmakers want to hear from you!


Contact your Lawmakers

Email them by August 31st.
The budget hearing’s schedule may be full, but you can still introduce yourself to your Senators and Representatives.


Write an Effective Email

  1. Keep it short. Don’t write more than a few sentences.
  2. Say why you emailed them. Developmental services make a BIG difference. Say that you get services and you need them.
  3. Say, “No cuts!” Ask them to back a budget that doesn’t cut services.
