Service Delivery & Transformation

The Arc New York's ongoing advocacy efforts at the State and Federal level aim to promote adequate program funding, preserve services for individuals with disabilities, support positive service transformation and ensure reasonable and realistic regulatory requirements.

The Arc also maintains a collaborative relationship with New York State Office for People With Developmental Disabilities, Department of Health, and Education Department. The State Office represents Chapters, individuals and the larger organization in an ongoing dialogue the encourages mutual understanding of the challenges faced in the field and advances effective solutions. 

As the landscape of the field continues to evolve, the State Office staff supports Chapters in understanding and properly implementing shifting policies and regulations - and successfuly adapting to the changing service system.
