Governor Rendell Says 2008-09 Budget Renews Commitment to Vulnerable Pennsylvanians
Date:2/5/2008

Essential Safety Net Services Remain Despite Rising Health Care Costs, Reductions in Federal Support

HARRISBURG, Pa., Feb. 5 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Despite the continuing challenges of reductions in federal funding and soaring health care costs, Governor Edward G. Rendell today remained committed to providing for the needs of Pennsylvania's most vulnerable citizens in his 2008-09 state budget proposal.

The Governor said no Pennsylvanian currently receiving health care and other critical services, specifically children, will experience any reduction in services or lose eligibility under his budget. He pledged to continue working to provide necessary services for the growing number of vulnerable individuals and families in need of assistance.

"Despite the considerable challenges we face again this year, Pennsylvania remains committed to preserving the long-established social safety net that ensures children, people with disabilities, low-income families and older adults continue to have access to critical services and essential health care," Governor Rendell said.

To meet these continued commitments, the Governor's budget includes initiatives that will strengthen provider and consumer incentives, better meet the preferences of vulnerable Pennsylvanians and enable additional investments in quality programs that support children, adults and families in need.

The Governor's budget proposal provides funding to increase the number and types of long-term living options available to older adults and persons with disabilities. It includes a $29.2 million investment in community-based infrastructure that expands long-term living options, representing a focused effort to create a balanced system that uses resources efficiently, offers consumers choices and ensures high-quality care.

Pennsylvania continues to face a growing demand for long-term living services for seniors and persons with disabilities. One-in-five
