NYLPI supports the COVID-19 Recovery for Seniors and People with Disabilities Act (S.3740), a bill introduced last week in the Senate by Senators Bob Casey (D-PA), Sherrod Brown (D-OH) and Doug Jones (D-AL). With the pandemic disproportionately affecting seniors and people with disabilities, this bill will improve access to healthcare and disability benefits, eliminate barriers to home and community-based services, expand access to food, help protect against scams, and fund legal services. Including NYLPI, more than 55 national and state organizations representing older adults, people with disabilities, and home health care workers support the bill.

A description of the bill, along with a list of supporting organizations, can be read here.
