Tell your state lawmakers to continue to support the Kupuna Caregivers Program with funding for next year.

A new state law, the first of its kind in the nation, created a program to help working caregivers pay for healthcare expenses of their loved ones. The Kupuna Caregivers Act provides a way for some working caregivers to get a “helping hand’ to keep them in the workplace. But the program needs continued funding.

Here’s how you can help:

Write to your state lawmakers and tell them why they should support funding for the Kupuna Caregivers Program. If you’re a caregiver, share your story. Personalized messages are especially effective.
