Please call your Representatives and urge them to sign the Bipartisan OAA Funding Letter sponsored by Congresswoman Suzanne Bonamici (D-OR) calling for increases in OAA funding for this year. Rep. Bonomici, along with Reps. Elise Stefanik (R-NY), Ted Deutch (D-FL) and John Katko (R-NY), is sponsoring a “Dear Colleague” letter calling for a doubling of fiscal year 2023 OAA Title III “aging independently” programs. Signatures for the Bonamici-Stefanik OAA sign-on letter are due Friday, April 22.
OAA programs are facing stagnant funding levels along with declining emergency funds. These fund levels are inadequate to meet the growing numbers of older adults needing support. Please encourage your representatives to join Reps. Bonamici and Stefanik in calling for increased OAA funding. If adopted it would increase funding for OAA Title III B Supportive Services, Title III C Nutrition, Title III D Evidence-Based Health Promotion and Prevention Programs and Title III E National Family Caregiver Support Program.

Again, signatures for the Bonamici-Stefanik OAA sign-on letter are due Friday, April 22.
