On February 26th, ADvancing States submitted a letter to Congress outlining the association’s priorities for FY2021 funding. In the letter, ADvancing States outlines the following requests:
- Maintain funding for all Aging and Disability programs at no less than FY2020 levels;
- Increase disease prevention and health promotion (OAA Title III-D) funds to account for the increased scope of services included in the proposed OAA reauthorization;
- Provide funding for the OAA research & evaluation activities included in the reauthorization proposal; and
- Appropriate additional funding for Elder Justice and APS.
Congress will continue to work on the appropriations process throughout the spring in preparation for FY2021, which begins on October 1, 2020.
