RAISE Family Caregivers Act Passes Senate

Share this page

The RAISE Family Caregivers Act (H.R. 3758), which ANCOR was a lead advocate for since its introduction, passed the Senate last week after passing the U.S. House in late December. The bill would establish a national, coordinated strategy and advisory council to support family caregivers, including a strategy for training and other such supports. Since the bill has already passed the House in the 115th Congress, it is now headed to the President’s desk for his signature, after which it will become law. Congratulations, advocates!
