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. Many members of the bipartisan ACT Caucus were instrumental in requesting and securing the funds. Spending includes: The Lifespan Respite Care program – increases by $700,000 for a total of $4.1 million (a 20.6% increase) and The National Family Caregiver Support Program – increases by $30 million for total of $180.6 million (a 19.9% increase).
While the gender bias is changing, it's still largely women who take on the role of caregiver for children and aging parents. That fact should inform their financial planning, argued a panel of women in finance. To read more, please follow this link.
This workshop will be at the Community Justice Center at the Monterey College of Law on Thursday, March 15th at 6 p.m. For more information and to register, please call (831)582-5400 or register online here.
