National Alliance for Caregiving Applauds Bipartisanship on Federal Spending Increases for Caregiving Support and Services
The National Alliance for Caregiving applauds the President and the Congressional Assisting Caregivers Today ("ACT") Caucus for new support for family caregivers in the FY 2018 Omnibus Federal Spending Package, signed into law today.
