Tell Congress: Renew the National Commitment to Fight Alzheimer’s
We’re making great progress against Alzheimer’s and all other dementia, but more work remains. Congress must pass the NAPA Reauthorization Act.
Alzheimer’s disease is one of the most critical public health issues in America. That’s why the Alzheimer’s Impact Movement (AIM), the Alzheimer’s Association and our advocates are unrelenting. We fight to support Alzheimer's and dementia research funding and advance bipartisan legislation that will have a positive and meaningful impact on people living with Alzheimer's and their caregivers today and in the future.
With the support of volunteer advocates and bipartisan congressional champions we’re making an impact. Help us persuade policymakers to make Alzheimer’s a national priority.
We advocate for the more than 6 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s, a progressive and fatal brain disease.
We’ve increased the federal investment in Alzheimer’s and dementia research funding more than seven-fold in the last decade.
More than 11 million Americans provide unpaid care for people living with Alzheimer’s or other dementias.

The bipartisan NAPA Reauthorization Act (S. 4203 / H.R. 7775) and the Alzheimer’s Accountability and Investment Act (S. 4202 / H.R. 7773) would build on the progress made over the last decade by continuing to promote rapid research and improve the delivery of clinical care and services for people living with Alzheimer’s.
The bipartisan Comprehensive Care for Alzheimer’s Act (S. 1125 / H.R. 2517) would ask the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) to test a different payment structure for dementia care management. This important bill has the potential to streamline today’s complicated health care maze for people living with dementia and their caregivers.
