3 Point Strategy
Of course there is more detail and nuance, but HomesRenewed has a basic three part plan:
1. Shape current legislation: The Senate Committee on Aging and the re-authorization of the Older Americans Act. HomesRenewed submitted a letter on falls prevention at the request of the Senate Aging Committee. We are following up with staff meetings on the Hill.
2. Outreach to legislators: In jurisdictions where there are incentive programs for home updates, we are working with congressional representatives to build on their constituents’ interest by introducing federal legislation. This issue can propel them to leadership positions among voters.
3. Introduce an “Affordable Aging” agenda for the 2020 presidential campaign. Growing evidence and media coverage show that large numbers of older Americans are not prepared for retirement or the modern lifespan. HomesRenewed sees updating homes as a linchpin to reducing the costs of aging.
Help us craft the HomesRenewed agenda. We are collecting aging statements from candidates now.* Get started now by sending us candidate statements AND YOUR ideas. YOU can be the committee taking on this important task.
No one else is going to do this. Join the committee.
I share HomesRenewed’s goal and strategy to increase the number of homes prepared for the modern lifespan. I want to join the effort!
