Issue: Since 1990, the state has imposed a sliding scale parental fee on families accessing services and supports for their children with disabilities through MA-TEFRA. These fees have dramatically increased over time, making MA-TEFRA unaffordable for many Minnesota families – forcing them into debt, or foregoing the services their children need altogether.
Our goal: Reducing parental fees associated with MA-TEFRA will ensure that all Minnesota children with disabilities get the supports they need to build a foundation for success, regardless of parental income.
