Membership Categories

    The New York Alliance for Inclusion & Innovation is a statewide membership association comprised of providers actively engaged in the delivery of community-based services for persons with intellectual, behavioral health, developmental and other disabilities.

    Representing a diverse cross-section of the sector, itself, and across the entire State of New York, the NY Alliance believes its strength is in its membership and therefore relies on collaboration with, and collective efforts of other partners and stakeholders with interest in improving the lives of people with disabilities and the agencies that support them.
