Tuesday, August 4th Is HCBS Call-In Day
Tell the Senate to Fund HCBS in the Next COVID-19 Package
NAELA is joining a national day of action with other aging and disability advocates to urge the Senate to include funding for home and community-based services (HCBS) in the next COVID-19 response package. HCBS funding is crucial to help people with disabilities and older adults stay safe in their own homes and out of nursing homes and other congregate settings that are being ravaged by COVID-19.
Unfortunately, Senate Majority Leader McConnell’s HEALS Act, introduced last week, contained no such proposal. The House included dedicated funding for HCBS in the HEROES Act (H.R. 6800) passed in May.
