Consumer Directed Action of New York was formed in summer 2022 to address the growing need for strong political action and grassroots advocacy surrounding the future of self-directed home care in New York State. 

We build self-directed power by bringing together aging & disabled New Yorkers, fiscal intermediaries, and other allies to strengthen New York’s Consumer Directed Personal Assistance (CDPA) program through:

  • Statewide and local community organizing

  • Educating and training the public on how to become more involved in advocacy;

  • Engaging elected officials through direct and grassroots lobbying;
  • Coalition work with organizations who share our values;
  • Bringing together New Yorkers who dream of a future where self-directed home care is accessible to all.
