Mar thirteen, 2019 — ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) State lawmakers need to grow investment for in-home services that many older New Yorkers rely on for food deliveries and other help.
Beth Finkel, AARP director for New York state, says the Democrat-controlled Assembly and Senate have proposed including investment to the $15 million growth Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo blanketed in his nation price range plan. The budget pays for community-based offerings, including transportation to clinical appointments, and helps with day by day sports.
The Assembly covered any other $1 million in its finances resolutions launched Wednesday, while the Senate tagged an additional $750,000 in its finances bills.
AARP officials say the funding allows aging New Yorkers to continue to be of their homes and avoid moving to more expensive taxpayer-funded nursing houses.
The business enterprise wants the investment covered within the last price range that’s due April 1.
