Advocates Urged to Call Congress about Older Americans Act

May 13, 2014

The Leadership Council of Aging Organizations is asking advocates for quality eldercare to call their members of Congress on May 13-14 to urge them reauthorize the Older Americans Act (OAA).

The OAA was last reauthorized in 2006, and expired in 2011.

Advocates are asked to call their senators and representatives at 888-277-8686.

The website of the National Council on Aging includes a suggested script that advocates can deliver to their members of Congress.
