We are proud to announce the launch of the CREATIVE CARE COUNCIL! LEARN MORE
Over the years, Caring Across Generations has invested in researching care to have a clear sense of where people’s attitudes towards care are, what care policies exist, where the gaps are for needed care policies, and where we need to move electeds and the general public to transform cultural norms. We have explicitly worked with public policy and social science experts to understand what sustainable public solutions to care could look like in practice.
Our research has demonstrated the need for accessible and affordable care. This allows us to push Congress to address the country’s urgent and growing demand for accessible and affordable care. In March 2023, President Biden made care a top policy priority through his 2024 budget proposal, containing some of the largest investments in care to date in the U.S. with $150 Billion for home- and community-based services.
On that same day, senators Bob Casey (PA), Maggie Hassan (NH), Sherrod Brown (OH), and representatives Dingell (MI-06), Jamaal Bowman (NY-16)—as well as 14 cosponsors in the Senate—introduced the Home and Community Based Services Access Act (HAA), aiming to make home- and community-based services (HCBS) a mandatory entitlement under Medicaid, ending waiting lists all over the country and bringing at least 1 million people into life-saving care. These are both historic proposals calling for better care for all across the country.
