IMPROVING THE QUALITY OF LIFE FOR OLDER ADULTS

The Coalition promotes the dignity, self-determination and well-being of North Carolina's older adults. Together, we represent more than 1 million votes in North Carolina.

2019 Legislative Priorities

  • Invest state dollars in adult protective services (APS), mandated core services provided by county departments of social services to our state’s most vulnerable adults.
  • Close the health insurance coverage gap in the state.
  • Increase the recurring state funding for the Home and Community Care Block Grant (HCCBG) by $7 million.
  • Increase funding for the Housing Trust Fund and increase the Homestead Property Tax Exemption to help ensure older adults and persons with disabilities have safe and affordable housing.
  • Conduct a comprehensive study about how the state can better support family care- givers, particularly caregivers who are in the workforce so they can continue to work.
