OWL ALERT Sept. 27, 2020
DEADLINE WED. 9/30 URGE NEWSOM TO SIGN BILLS THAT GIVE ALL FAMILIES SUPPORT
SITUATION: AB 2520 will help low-income people and immigrants more easily apply for a variety of crucial public benefits programs. It expands access to medical records necessary to apply for these programs, as well as requires healthcare providers to complete benefit-eligibility forms for free, so families can access these programs as quickly as possible.
AB 2377 will keep more adult “board and care” facilities open, after too many have closed in recent years. Residents with mental health and other chronic challenges have depended upon Adult Residential Facilities for critical housing, care, and support services, and this bill would help keep them open so their residents don’t become homeless.
ACTION: Email, call Governor Newsom by Wednesday Sept 30
