Please call or send an email to your representatives by this Wednesday, March 27 and urge them to fund the Area Agencies on Aging!

The Joint Budget Committee finalized the Long Bill last Thursday WITHOUT any increase to state funding for senior services.

We need your help now! Please call or send an email to your representatives and ask them to fund the Area Agencies on Aging. Funding for community services to older adults is important to keeping them in independent living, which ultimately saves the state money.

Call or email the message below to your representative ASAP!

Subject Line: Please Fund Senior Services in Colorado

Salutation: Dear Representative,

My name is ?_______. I live in ?_____City/County.

I thank you for your past support of Colorado’s older adults and the programs that provide much needed services to help them age in the community. But we need your support again in the Long Bill.

Please support increased funding for senior services like home delivered meals and transportation to doctors appointments when the Long Bill is considered in the House this week. State funding for these services has not been increased since 2019, which means providers of these services are facing 2024 levels of need with 2018 levels of state funding.

We appreciate anything you can provide to help us meet this growing demand.

Thank you,

[Your Signature]
