ACCSES is an elite network of more than 1,200 disability service providers that provides exceptional services to people with disabilities across the United States. Our work empowers and supports individuals with disabilities to reach their full potential through self-determination. ACCSES provides a voice for these individuals at the highest levels of government. Our advocacy efforts resonate throughout the halls of Congress, executive agencies, and the White House.
Powerful Networks, Undeniable Results
As a result of our aggressive lobby and grassroots advocacy campaign, ACCSES has fought to advance disability policy to ensure that all people with disabilities continue to enjoy options and opportunities for where they choose to live, work, and play. ACCSES is the “tip of the spear” – fighting for the rights of the people with disabilities you serve every day, and their families.
ACCSES works with our partners to ensure Federal education policy emphasizes career-focused outcomes. From WIOA, to ESSA, to IDEA our team strives to increase opportunities and prevent unintended consequences.
ACCSES continues to drive the conversation on how changes in health policy directly impact individuals with disabilities. Our government affairs team closely engages with CMS on emerging issues around managed care and home and community-based services.
ACCSES is the leader in ensuring policy makers understand the critical importance of expanding and preserving a full range of employment options and opportunities for people with disabilities.
ACCSES promotes efforts to modernize and advance the AbilityOne program and comparable state use programs. We work to improve job opportunities, wages, and career advancement.
