  • This event has ended.

REGISTER FOR THIS EVENT HERE.

USAging is thrilled to announce our return to an in-person policy briefing in Washington, DC, this coming March! Join us as cherry blossoms begin to bloom and let your advocacy take root right here in the nation’s capital!

The first year of the Biden Administration and the 117th Congress has seen unprecedented investment in the Older Americans Act and other aging programs—affecting caregivers, the direct care workforce, Medicare, Medicaid, transportation, housing and more. Local and national advocacy efforts around the critical need for increased home and community-based services for older adults has been amplified throughout the pandemic. AAAs and Title VI programs around the country have raised the visibility of these essential programs and services, bringing to the forefront the vital role in which you serve your community and state. 

With the culmination of COVID-19 relief funding, potential Build Back Better investments, the need for continued advocacy for sustained annual funding and a shifting political dynamic in the coming election year, it’s more important than ever for aging advocates, YOU, to join us in Washington to navigate our new political realities and changing legislative landscape.

Attendees will learn more about advocating for today’s aging policy priorities, gain insider analysis of the policy landscape in Washington, and get the messaging and advocacy tools and tactics to best serve older adults and caregivers at the local, state and national levels. And in exciting news, USAging’s Aging and Disability Business Institute will once again host a special intensive session on a soon-to-be-announced topic!

You really can’t afford to miss the 2022 USAging Policy Briefing, mingle with peers just steps from the Capitol and get the latest policy insights that will help you advocate successfully for the older adults and caregivers you serve in your communities.
