A Message From Katie
LeadingAge president and CEO Katie Smith Sloan calls on Congress to support the aging services infrastructure.

LeadingAge members know better than anyone that America’s aging services infrastructure has been ignored and underfunded for decades. Those members are feeling the strain of that neglect. And they worry about the challenges they will face when they have to fill future care needs—needs that will grow as the population ages.

Read Katie’s entire message on investing in infrastructure by addressing workforce needs, increasing access to services, and supporting family members.

Tell Congress: Support Older Adults
Congress is back to work and negotiations on the proposed infrastructure bill and funding for key programs is happening now. We need aging services advocates like you to demand funding for safe and affordable housing, and home and community-based services for older adults. Tell Congress to fund our aging services infrastructure now!
