Rep. Stanley, Co-Chair of the Committee on Elder Affairs, is thrilled to announce that the House of Representatives passed a Health and Human Services and Elder Affairs consolidated amendment to the FY23 Budget (H.4700). This amendment will provide much-needed funding to programs and services that support the state’s aging population. The budget makes great strides in supporting the essential workforce which provides direct care in nursing facilities and in the home.
The amendment includes funding for workforce supports, elder mental health outreach teams, elder supportive housing sites, rest homes, Meals on Wheels, Councils on Aging Grants, SHINE program and the Alzheimer’s Association Dementia Care coordination program.
