How YOU Can Help Us Stop Cuomo from Changing Eligibility Criteria for Home Care

As many of you may know, Governor Cuomo’s team implemented new criteria for home care in the recent Health Budget Law. This change will dramatically restrict criteria, resulting in people either being denied home care services and being stuck in the community without care, or forced into an institution.

We have been meeting with State Legislators asking them to write to Governor Cuomo asking them to repeal or suspend that section of the law. Not only does this change put at risk significant federal funding, but also threatens the health and safety of our community during the COVID-19 pandemic. We released our formal letter to the Governor on October 7th 2020, which you can find here:

What can you do?

We will be stronger in numbers. We encourage you to write to the Governor as well. Below you will find a template letter we drafted that we encourage you to use, as well as his contact information.
