CAIU’s position on 2020 Early Intervention funding and educational funding for Loysville Youth Development Center School

The 2020-2021 PA state budget did not fully fund Early Intervention Services (preschool special education) and educational funding for Loysville Youth Development Center School. The budget only approved funding for these services through November 30, 2020. The Capital Area Intermediate Unit (CAIU) requests the PA state budget fully support the funding of Early Intervention Services and Educational Funding for Loysville Youth Development Center School for remainder of the 2020-2021 school year at levels equal to or greater than funding for 2019-2020.

Every contact matters

Communication is key. Send an email, mail a letter, or make a phone call. Any communication is better than none at all. What matters most is that your legislators hear from you.
