Take Action
Tell Congress to Finalize Easterseals Priorities Before the End of the Year!

Urge Congress to use the remaining post-election days of the 115th Congress to complete action on fiscal year 2019 funding, reauthorize the Medicaid Money Follows the Person Program, and expand eligibility for ABLE savings accounts.


 

The current Congress is returning to Washington following the election to complete its business for the year. The 115th Congress still has an opportunity to act on Easterseals priorities:

  • Promote community living and services for individuals with disabilities (EMPOWER Care ActH.R. 5306/S. 2227);
  • Help ensure more families can save for their children with disabilities (ABLE Age Adjustment Act: H.R. 1874/S. 817); and
  • Invest in housing, nutrition, transportation, and other programs important to individuals and families served by Easterseals (Fiscal Year 2019 Funding).

TAKE ACTION: Contact your Members of Congress and urge them to use the final days of the 115th Congress to make a difference in the lives of children and adults with disabilities, veterans, older adults, and others!

Finalize legislation important to individuals with disabilities, veterans, and seniors!
Please use the final days of the 115th Congress to complete action on legislation important to children and adults with disabilities, veterans, older adults, and their families.

As a supporter of Easterseals, I respectfully asks that you use the lame duck session to:

* Promote community living and services for individuals with disabilities by extending the Medicaid Money Follows the Person Program through the bipartisan EMPOWER Care Act (H.R. 5306/ S. 2227);

* Help ensure families can save for their children with disabilities by expanding ABLE savings accounts through the ABLE Age Adjustment Act (H.R. 1874/ S. 817); and

* Invest in housing, nutrition, transportation, and other programs important to individuals and families served by Easterseals by completing the final fiscal year 2019 funding bills.
