S.3057: Modernization of the Older Americans Act Amendments

Overview

The Modernization of the Older Americans Act Amendments (S. 3057) would strengthen the National Family Caregiver Support Program (NFCSP) by extending the RAISE Family Caregivers Act, increasing funding levels to support the needs of the growing older population, and helping make sure that more caregivers can get their needs assessed when they turn to OAA programs.

Talking Points

  • The Older Americans Act has been a critical building block in improving the well-being of millions of older Americans across the country.
  • By expanding and strengthening OAA programs, S. 4334 will allow senior citizens to remain active members of their communities by providing essential nutrition, health, and economic security services.
