AUCD signed onto a letter in support of the Recognize, Assist, Include, Support and Engage (RAISE) Family Caregivers Act (S. 1719/H.R. 3099). The letter was sent to Chairman John Kline (R-MN) and Ranking Member Bobby Scott (D-VA) of the House Health, Education and Workforce Committee. The bill would implement the federal Commission on Long-Term Care's recommendation that Congress authorize the creation of a national strategy to support family caregivers, and would create and advisory body to make further recommendations. AUCD also signed onto an ad promoting the RAISE Act that appeared in Politico.
