Help Stop the Proposed Cuts to Senior Benefits

Senior citizens are one of the fastest growing and most vulnerable of populations we serve. Without the support of the Senior Benefits Program, many senior citizens will face greater barriers accessing nutritional food, transportation, and necessary medical care. The Governor's proposed budget includes eliminating funding and repealing the Senior Benefits Program which serves over 11,000 seniors in Alaska.  

We need you to take action on the proposed cuts to the Senior Benefits Program. Help us take action today by contacting your legislator, or by sharing your story on how the Senior Benefits Program affects you or your community.
