2022 Policy Priorities

Our work in direct response to the COVID crisis motivated a rapid evolution of LeadingAge advocacy in 2020 and 2021 and continues to be reflected in our 2022 Policy Platform, including a specific priority focus on COVID relief. COVID reinforced the need for policymakers to address longstanding LeadingAge advocacy aims. Mental health and telehealth have come into clearer focus for LeadingAge members.
