Advocacy

The primary goal of legislative advocacy efforts of Connections Area Agency on Aging is to secure support and funding for home and community based services. These services provide seniors, persons with disabilities, and caregivers with the independence they want and need to remain in their own homes and communities. With 10,000 persons per day in the United States turning 65, the need for these services continues to increase. It is essential for you to communicate this need and your concerns with local, state and federal policymakers.

For more information concerning national issues relating to home and community based services: National Association of Area Agencies on Aging (n4a)

It is important that you speak out on the issues that concern you. Local legislators hold forums on a regular basis in their communities to "check the pulse" of their constituents and to give you the updates of their legislative work.

Here is a convenient link to the local forums hosted by each party of the Iowa Legislature. Be sure to attend and speak up!
