FEDERAL PRIORITIES

Support the Alzheimer's and Dementia Community During the COVID-19 Pandemic


The COVID-19 pandemic presents additional challenges for more than 5 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s, their caregivers, the research community and the nonprofits that support them. As Congress works on the economic relief package, we’re asking them to include these bipartisan policies that will have an impact on the millions of families affected by Alzheimer’s and other dementia: the Promoting Alzheimer’s Awareness to Prevent Elder Abuse Act, the Improving HOPE for Alzheimer’s Act, and expanding access to credit for nonprofits like the Alzheimer’s Association to continue to serve our constituents’ needs.
