Tell your Representative, Protect Critical Funding in the FY20 Massachusetts Budget

Next week, the Massachusetts House begins debate on the state budget for the coming year. 

As proposed, the state budget fails to fully fund some important programs for older adults in the Commonwealth, and we need your help to make sure key programs get the support they require. 

Programs like Meals on Wheels, Home and Community Based Care, and Homlessness Prevention are all at risk.

Tell your State Representative to keep seniors healthy, protected, and living in their homes with dignity 

With over 1,300 amendments proposed to this year's budget, your Representative needs to hear from YOU, their constituents, as they make decisions.  Please join AARP Massachusetts in supporting these important programs.

Dear [Decision Maker],

As your constituent, I'm contacting you to ask you to please support a budget that puts a priority on keeping seniors healthy and living in their homes with dignity. Programs like Meals on Wheels, SNAP, and home care services and supports make all the difference to Massachusetts seniors.

Please support these amendments to ensure that the Massachusetts Budget funds the programs and services seniors depend on.
