End Wait Lists for Crucial Services

There is a statewide waiting list of close to 17,000 people seeking non-Medicaid-funded home- and community-based services through programs such as the Expanded In-home Services for the Elderly Program (EISEP), Senior Transportation Services, and home delivered meals.


These programs can also greatly help relieve the burden on family caregivers who care for the recipients of these services. New York State should make an additional investment in non-Medicaid home- and community-based care that not only assists older persons but their family caregivers as well.


Please take a moment to urge your state lawmakers to provide adequate funding to end the waiting lists as part of this year's state budget.
