Sign Up For Action Alerts!

An Action Alert notifies subscribers of critical legislation or government action generally five or six times a year that impact Pennsylvanians with disabilities. The Arc of PA issues Action Alerts to gain grassroot support from our subscribers. Subscribing to receive Action Alerts will assure your knowledge of timely disability-related issues while automatically identifying your legislator and allowing you to call or conveniently send an email. For example, we were able to notify thousands that our state legislature was considering charging monthly premiums for children with disabilities “loophole/PH 95” receiving medical assistance services.
