Please call your lawmakers TODAY and remind them of your priorities, thank them for restoring proposed Medicaid cuts, and let them know how critical it is to properly fund nursing homes, adult care facilities and other aging services providers that are still recovering from – and actively fighting – the COVID-19 pandemic.

The bottom line: nursing homes and adult care facilities need strategic investment and support from the Legislature in order to provide the best care possible to New York’s aging population. In speaking with lawmakers, stress that long-term care has been underfunded for several years, and these financial strains were only made worse by the pandemic and unfunded mandates. Detailed budget materials and the one-house budget update can be used to provide more detailed talking points.

Absent public support, high quality providers will close, the workforce will shrink, and access challenges will grow.We request a restoration of these proposed cuts to LTC and additional funding to help underwrite the costs of the pandemic.
