InterHab Champion Fund

For more than 50 years, InterHab’s members have worked to build a better future for Kansans with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). They have been joined in that effort by a number of elected officials who became champions of this important cause. In 2020, InterHab created the InterHab Champion Fund in order to recognize those elected officials who have prioritized Kansans with IDD within the governmental process. There are many supportive elected officials who do not appear on the following list who are also appreciated for their attention to IDD issues during previous legislative sessions. With your help, the InterHab Champion Fund will grow in the future to recognize an increasing number of elected officials who express their support of Kansans with IDD.
