ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) State lawmakers want to growth funding for in-domestic offerings that many older New Yorkers depend on for meals deliveries and other help.
Beth Finkel, AARP director for New York nation, says the Democrat-controlled Assembly and Senate have each proposed including investment to the $15 million increase Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo included in his kingdom budget plan. The finances pay for community-based services such as transportation to scientific appointments and help with everyday activities.
The Assembly blanketed some other $1 million in its budget resolutions released Wednesday, while the Senate tagged on an extra $750,000 in its finances bills.
AARP officers say the investment allows getting old New Yorkers to continue to be of their houses and avoid having to transport to more steeply-priced taxpayer-funded nursing homes.
The organization needs the funding protected in the final budget; it is due April 1.
