Youth Providers Association Legislation


A Voice on The Hill.

Just to know the laws and legislation isn’t good enough; we must educate our representatives so they create common-sense laws that enable and embolden the private provider network.

Current YPA Legislative Efforts

The YPA meets with legislators before, during and after the legislative session to address issues that come up and to provide education for how important it is to support a healthy continuum of care.

During the 2024 Legislative Session, the YPA had joint efforts with DHHS’ to pass HB38. This bill had a $2,641,000 increase for providers, including bringing Foster Medicaid rates up to parity with standard Medicaid rates.

Meet the Team

After years of watching legislation impact providers without providers’ professional input, influence or oversight, the YPA knew we needed to be more involved politically. 

The YPA has previously contracted with legislative consultants, but is currently restructuring and determining how best to form and keep a powerful presence on Capitol Hill.

The Executive team has a  Legislative Chair, ensuring that a voice for private providers is at the table before, during, and after bills are passed that will impact our system. 

We’re proud to have our team represent YPA interests on the hill. As members of the YPA, you can make sure the issues that impact you most will be represented. 

I want to make it clear that the lobbying sector does an important job. It is very useful to the government to hear the views of a broad range of groups to make sure we get the best.
