In February 2020, ANCOR surveyed providers of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD) services regarding their workforce issues. The survey closed March 15, 2020, just before the pandemic hit our nation.
The findings include data that is very concerning:
- 66% of providers were turning away new referrals due to insufficient staffing;
- 43% of providers had discontinued programs or services due to insufficient staffing;
- 65% of providers reported delaying the launch of new programs or services; and
- 7 in 10 reported experiencing difficulties in achieving quality standards.

ANCOR is requesting that all providers participate in an updated survey to allow them to collect data that is up-to-date. Please take the time to complete this updated survey.
