Scorecard

Get informed about congressional support for families affected by Alzheimer disease with the AIM Congressional Scorecard.

Learn about our scoring system:


AIM’s Scorecard allows voters to identify and support members of Congress committed to making Alzheimer’s a national priority. In addition to the initiatives listed below, there are additional activities AIM and its members ask Congressional leaders to support, including:

  •  National Alzheimer’s Plan implementation support and oversight
  •  An additional $100 million in resources for research, education, care and     support activities
  •  Participation in Alzheimer’s town halls and community events
  •  Congressional statements, media outreach and constituent engagement on     Alzheimer’s issues.

    While the AIM Congressional Scorecard serves as a fair indicator of who in Congress supports AIM, it is important to note some members of Congress are not listed on the scorecard, but champion Alzheimer’s issues in other ways. AIM is also grateful for their support.

    • HOPE for Alzheimer’s Act
    Alzheimer's Breakthrough Act

    If your member of Congress received a check under “Alzheimer’s Breakthrough Act,” he or she cosponsored and support this bill in the current 112th Congress.

    The Alzheimer’s Breakthrough Act (H.R. 1897) would require a federal commitment to accelerating treatments that prevent, cure, or slow the progression of the disease and thus reduce the costs to the federal government and families. It would make Alzheimer’s research a priority at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), create public-private partnerships, and ensure that the NIH requests the funding necessary to get the job done.
