Advocacy Alert: EMPOWER Care Act

Advocacy Alert:
EMPOWER Care Act
Contact Senator Portman and Senator Brown to ask that they include the EMPOWER Care Act as part of the vote on the omnibus bill on March 23, 2018.

The EMPOWER Care Act would re-authorize funding for Money Follows the Person (MFP), a program that transitions people with disabilities out of nursing homes into the community. MFP enhances opportunities to live independently and age with dignity.

Ask: Senator _________, please include the EMPOWER Care Act in the vote on the omnibus bill. Ohio will exhaust its funds for Money Follows the Person, which assists people with disabilities in moving out of expensive nursing homes into the community, by December 31, 2018. This program is vital ensuring the independence of persons with disabilities in Ohio. Thank you for supporting this bill!
