ASK YOUR STATE SENATOR TO SUPPORT PROGRAMS ESSENTIAL FOR OLDER ADULTS
It is important that the North Carolina state senate provide support for programs that will help older adults and their family caregivers.
Some of the House approved funding improvements include:
1. Home and Community Care Block Grant Expansion (HCCBG)
2. Special Assistance Personal Needs Allowance Increase
3. Funding for 2-1-1 made permanent
Ask your state senator to show their support for these critical programs today!
Note: For some legislative districts, the districts are broken up within zip codes. If this is the case, you may need to enter your zip code along with the additional 4 digit code to email your legislator. For example, 27713-4524. No worries. If this is needed, you will receive a message after you hit the submit button and you can then locate this code on your driver's license, your mail or by visiting the "United State Postal Services 4-digit code lookup" webpage here: https://tools.usps.com/go/ZipLookupAction!input.action.
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.
