Advocating For Members
LeadingAge continues working hard to represent the ever-changing needs and experience of our members. Last week, we sent a letter to HUD urging release of CARES Act Senior Housing Funding. Yesterday, we released a press statement to further induce movement on distribution of these critical funds. Meanwhile, we’re working hard to fight for new legislation to support not just affordable housing, but also the entire continuum. Watch this email for more details and ways you can help!
