ANCOR Supports Continuing RAISE Act Efforts

September 12, 2016
On September 6, ANCOR joined AARP and more than 50 other national aging and disabilities organizations in sending a letter to Chairman John Kline (R-MN) and Ranking Member Bobby Scott (D-VA) of the House Committee on Education & the Workforce, strongly supporting the Recognize, Assist, Include, Support, and Engage (RAISE) Family Caregivers Act. The legislation was passed unanimously by the Senate in December, and the House is expected to vote on it while in session this week.The bill would implement the federal Commission on Long-Term Care's bipartisan recommendation that Congress required the development of a national strategy to support family caregivers. 
 
In addition to the letter, ANCOR also joined in an advertisement in support of the RAISE Act that ran in Politico on September 7 and 8. The letter and advertisement are attached below.
