Older Americans Act / TIME for Holocaust Survivors Act

The JCRC is proud to report that in early March, both the U.S. Senate and U.S. House of Representatives unanimously approved a bill to reauthorize the Older Americans Act. The legislation makes notable improvements in the delivery of home- and community-based services for seniors, while notably also incorporating provisions from the Trauma-Informed Modernization of Eldercare (TIME) for Holocaust Survivors Act.

The Jewish Federation of Greater New Orleans is one of over 300 national, state, and local organizations from every state in the country that signed on to this letter to U.S. Senators in June 2019 in support of the TIME Act.
