Iowa DD Council in D.C.

Friday, April 1, 2022

The Iowa Developmental Disabilities Council was in Washington D.C. at the end of March.  Brooke Lovelace, Executive Director, and Bill Kallestad, Public Policy Manager, had an opportunity to attend the recent Disability Policy Seminar in Washington D.C. 

The seminar provided an opportunity to learn from other disability advocates about key national legislation and top priorities. They took this opportunity to meet with and share the DD Council's 2022 Legislative Agenda. It was a great chance to discuss the important work of the Council with the Offices of Senators Grassley and Ernst, and Representatives Axne and Feenstra.

Our national legislators are very aware of our concerns about the workforce crisis, accessibility issues, and the growing Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) waiting lists.

We thank them for their time and efforts on behalf of Iowans with disabilities.
