“We were proud to host Senator Grassley at our Double HH operations. He recently went to bat for us on a funding issue,” commented Hope Haven CEO Matt Buley. “What a blessing that he got it fixed, and then came to see firsthand the work we do in manufacturing and employment services.”

Grassley recently contacted Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) on behalf of people with disabilities and their advocates, helping to rectify discrepancies with Provider Relief Fund eligibility.

“That’s what representative government is all about,” Grassley remarked when discussing his part in helping to bring the issue to the attention of CMS.

“The efforts and funding needed to support people with disabilities deserves the attention of our leaders, and we were honored to be able to talk about that with Senator Grassley,” Buley added.
