Help Keep $21 Million Increase for Senior Support Services in Final State Budget!

AARP is fighting to ensure that older Pennsylvanians receive the help they need to live in their homes and communities as they age--where so many raised their families.

Right now, state officials in Harrisburg are deciding how much money will be available for programs that help thousands of Pennsylvanians live in their homes and communities as they age.  Proceeds from the Pennsylvania Lottery can easily finance a funding increase that will help reduce the number of older adults currently on waiting lists for assistance.

Governor Corbett’s budget proposal increases funding for home and community based care by $21 million, which will also improve the balance between nursing home care and these less expensive alternatives that allow older residents to remain at home. You can help by asking your elected officials to keep the proposed $21 million increase for home and community-based services in the final 2014-15 state budget.

Please take just a moment and do your part to ensure older Pennsylvanians and their  family members, friends and neighbors have access to the care they need. Urge your elected officials to keep the Governor’s proposed $21 million lottery fund increase for home and community-based programs in the final state budget.
