Additional Funding Needed for the OLDER AMERICANS ACT In the Next Covid Relief Act
SITUATION: Specifically, we should support $1.364 billion in emergency funding for OAA programs and services. This includes money for home delivered meals; supportive services; assistance with securing and keeping vaccine appointments; caregiver support services; health & wellness programs; as well as funding for Native American tribes.
ACTION: Contact your Senators and Representatives to insist that Congress include critical OAA funding to keep older Americans safe in the next round of coronavirus response.
