Let's thank Governor Cuomo and state lawmakers for funding vital services!
Governor Cuomo and the New York State legislature made an historic increase - $15 million - in funding for home and community services such as home delivered meals, transportation services, and adult day programs as part of this year's state budget. This funding will help enable thousands of New Yorkers to remain in their homes rather than going into nursing homes, and support the family caregivers who help their loved ones to remain independent. After years of many older New Yorkers facing huge wait lists for such services, this is a really important step forward.
Please take a moment to show your appreciation by sending a message of thanks to the Governor, legislative leaders, and your state legislators.
By taking action you will join AARP's online network and will receive urgent news and action alerts about the issues that matter the most to older Americans, as well as information about AARP activities, events, and member benefits.
