n4a 2019 Policy Agenda

2019 Policy Agenda Released

Surrounded by more than 160 n4a members and allies at the 25th annual n4a Aging Policy Briefing and Capitol Hill Day, we released this year’s ambitious policy agenda! 
The n4a 2019 Policy Priorities outline the most critical policy considerations facing Area Agencies on Aging and Title VI Native American aging programs—and the Aging Network as a whole. They reflect where we think our collective advocacy is most needed in 2019 to promote the health, security and well-being of older adults in every community in the country. Please join us as we:

  • Reauthorize the Older Americans Act by strengthening the aging services and supports that make it possible for older adults to age well and safety at home and in the community. (For details, see our just-released OAA recommendations.)
  • Invest in Cost-Effective Aging at Home and in the Community, especially OAA Titles III B Supportive Services, III E National Family Caregiver Support Program and VI Grants for Native Americans.
  • Improve Health by Addressing the Social Determinants and recognize the important role that the Aging Network plays in achieving this goal.

n4a members will receive a hard copy in the coming days, but feel free to read the Priorities online now.
P.S. If you weren't able to join us for the 25th anniversary of n4a’s Aging Policy Briefing, check out the action from the past two days by following @n4aACTION and #n4aAPB on Twitter!
